All stakeholders involved in road safety are coordinated by the Inter-Ministerial Committee on road safety. The Committee is chaired by the Minister of Citizen Protection.
Improvements to road infrastructure are managed by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks for TEN-T and national roads in addition to the Athens metropolitan area main road network. Inter-urban and rural networks are the responsibility of the Decentralised Administration (Regions). Urban roads are the responsibility of the municipalities.
The Greek Strategic Plan has adopted the vision of sustainable road safety and its five safety principles: functionality of the road, homogeneity of mass and/or speed and direction, forgiveness of the environment and road users, predictability of road course and road user behaviour by recognisable road design, and state awareness by road users.
The latest Greek road safety plan runs from 2011-2020, setting the target of halving the number of road fatalities by 2020, compared to 2011.
Priority topics to achieve this aim is mainly directed at development of road safety culture among Greek road users.
