The ASIRT Education Abroad Program offers members access to:
Country-Specific Road Safety Reviews. ASIRT collects, analyzes and produces comprehensive road safety information in the form of country-specific Road Safety Reviews (RSR) for more than 90 countries. These user-friendly, four-page reports describe general road conditions; frequent road crash sites; driving regulations; urban, rural, night and seasonal travel precautions; pedestrian, passenger and cycle safety tips; and quality and availability of emergency medical care.
