The Tribal Motor Vehicle Injury Prevention (TMVIP) Best Practices Guide 2016(https://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/pdf/native/tmvip_best-practices_guide_2016-a.pdf) provides a summary of the burden of motor vehicle crash injury and death for the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) community. It offers recommended strategies with examples from Indian Country to increase seat belt use, increase child safety seat use, and reduce alcohol-impaired driving. The Guide also outlines five important components for TMVIP:
- Data and Evaluation
- Tailored Evidence-Based Strategies
- Technical Support
Within each component, the Guide covers what is needed, lessons learned, case examples, resources, and calls to action for TMVIP programs.
