Protocols

The programme is based on four protocols that, together, provide consistent safety ratings of roads across European borders, increasing recognition and understanding of the sources of risk and indicating priorities for network improvement.

Nationally, EuroRAP protocols enable the identification of the most dangerous roads, the ability to track performance over time, and therefore where action is appropriate. Internationally, they enable comparisons between road safety performance within and between countries.

EuroRAP encourages and supports several continuing post-project activities to ensure that genuine road safety gains are made and the capability of stakeholder organisations continues to grow.

To ensure that stakeholder organisations are in a position to draw maximum benefit from the detailed road condition report generated through ViDA, Star Ratings and Safer Road Investment Plans, EuroRAP offers ongoing support and training on the use of the customised RAP software. For more information please visit our Resources page
