Because of the integration of the Road Traffic Accident Register in the Management Information System for Roads and Road Traffic (MISTRA) of the of the Swiss Federal Roads Office (FEDRO), it is possible to link accident data with data of other FEDRO registers. In particular, this concerns the following registers and information systems:
• Register of the Administrative Procedures (ADMAS);
• Driver Authorization Register (FABER);
• Vehicle and Owner Data Register (MOFIS);
• Base system of MISTRA (BS);
and other data.
This newly created pool of data allows detailed analyses of various factors on accident rates. The proposed research package “road safety gains through data pooling and structured data analysis" consists of 7 sub-projects and is divided into two phases. The scientific sub-projects examine the fields of persons/society, situation/infrastructure, vehicle, weather, medical consequences and economic costs.
The aim of the package management "road safety gains through data pooling and structured data analysis" is to coordinate the scientific sub-projects and to lead the administrative needs of the research package. Furthermore, it will be responsible for the synthesis reports of the research package, for coordination of the research questions to be answered in the RP and organization of workshops, conferences, and meetings with the accompanying commission.
