About the MV-NPLT
With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, a group of injury prevention professionals, researchers, engineers, and policy makers formed the Motor Vehicle National Peer Learning Core Team (MV-NPLT) to promote a public health approach to the acceptance and integration of automated safety features that can rapidly reduce automobile crash injuries and fatalities and decrease crash disparities. The MV-NPLT Core Team believes that public health practitioners can increase the acceptance and use of life-saving motor-vehicle technologies by understanding the systems that facilitate or impede the uptake of new safety technologies.
