GTIPI educates Georgians to drive safely through training on child passenger safety, teen driving, and senior driving. GTIPI is supported by a grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

The University of Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute (GTIPI) will cease operations on September 30, 2017.  We will no longer be providing Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) training, CPST Continuing Education Unit (CEU) workshops or other traffic injury education and support after that date.

We will continue to support you in your programming efforts until September 30, 2017.

Thank you for all you do to reduce traffic-related morbidity and mortality.  It has been our privilege to support your efforts for the past 35 years.  Please do not hesitate to contact GTIPI with questions, concerns, or feedback.

Child Passenger Safety

GTIPI trains Child Passenger Safety Technicians throughout the year and works to maintain the certifications of all those currently certified in an effort to keep Georgia’s youngest passengers safe.


P.R.I.D.E. is a National Award-Winning program aimed at teens and their parents. GTIPI certifies instructors in the state of Georgia and hosts parent-teen classes throughout the year.


Through CarFit, GTIPI helps Georgia seniors find out how aging and its effects change the way they fit in their vehicles and how that may affect their driving.

Rollover Simulator

The Rollover Simulator demonstrates the importance of seat belts by using crash dummies, one with and one without a seat belt, in a crash.
