Montenegro’s rapid growth in the 2000s was accompanied by an increase in vehicular ownership and road accidents, underscoring the need for a comprehensive program to improve road safety.
Between 2004 and 2007, Montenegro experienced a 40% increase in road accidents and associated personal damages. The economic cost of traffic accidents in Montenegro is nearly 2% of GDP-a half point higher than in most middle-income countries.
Authorities have prioritised upgrading road safety equipment and practices in line with EU standards, and are taking steps to upgrade relevant signage and infrastructure. However, assistance is needed to build the technical and institutional capacity of relevant road agencies and implement investments and pilot projects.
