Risk Mapping

Risk maps showing the rate of fatal and serious crashes in Switzerland were published every three years since 1997 up to 2003.

Coverage spans the primary route network – motorways and main roads – totalling 7,000kms. This represents just 10% of Switzerland’s road length, but carries the majority of traffic. 1 in 3 fatal crashes, and 1 in 4 serious crashes, occur on these roads.

Results showed that 26% of the road network analysed were rated low risk and 47% in the second low-medium risk banding. Some 12% of the network fell into the two highest risk bands.

Results showed that 87% of the network achieved 3-stars with 13% achieving 4- or 5-stars.
