Background & Policy context

Since one of the main tasks of road administration is to carry out activities improving the functioning of road infrastructure in order to improve traffic safety, traffic managers are interested in managing road infrastructure safety.

Road infrastructure safety management (RISM) is the use of planning, design, construction and operation of road infrastructure procedures, the systematic identification of hazards on the road, estimating their possible consequences for road users and the application of action to eliminate identified hazards or to reduce the effects of their occurrence measured by the number of accidents, number of victims and injured in accidents and fatalities the cost of road accidents.

A key result of the project is the demographic indicator of serious accidents.

According to the adopted classification some districts are characterized by a very high risk and in  another  districts is the risk high. In these districts the share of fatalities and serious injuries is more than 71% of the total victims.

The highest risk levels are in districts Brest, Międzyrzecz, Opatów, Legnica and Międzychód. Their level is almost 24 times higher than in the counties with the lowest risks (Rybnik, Sokołów, Łowicz, Nowy Tomyśl,  Konin).

Policy objectives

The methodology will serve for information about the road safety in all districts of Poland.  National or local administrations than can better adjust the measurements applied for  increasing the road safety.
