Buenos Aires will be hosting the 5th meeting of the International Transport Forum's Safer City Streets initiative. The meeting discusses urban road safety, crash data collection and transit safety.
The ITF Safer City Streets initiative offers a platform for road safety experts to share their experience and develop a global database at city level. A full network meeting will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 10-11 April 2019.
Topics on the agenda include:
- Crash and casualty data collection systems, with a goal to exploit all available data sources and reduce under-reporting.
- Mobility data collection methods (e.g. origin-destination surveys and on-street counts) so as to guarantee comparability over time and between cities, which is essential in casualty risk analysis.
- Transit safety, with a particular focus on reducing the number of vulnerable road users killed and seriously injured in collisions with buses.
- Acting on infrastructure and behaviours to reduce the risk to vulnerable road users (speed, unprotected routes to school, etc.).
