Road safety policy is centralised in Slovakia. The Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development with the Ministry of Interior and Traffic Police play an important role in formulating national road safety strategy, setting targets and the development of the road safety programme.

Improvements to road infrastructure are the responsibility of the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development, the Slovak Road Administration and the National Highway Company.

Risk Mapping

Slovakia has achieved Risk Mapping for over 10% of the network. The 5,000kms mapped carries 50% of all road deaths.

The latest results were undertaken as part of the SENSOR project which the Slovak Association of Motorsport (SAMS) was a partner. The Risk Map covers the three year data period 2009-2011.

Star Rating

As part of the SENSoR project, inspections of 1,866km were carried out, 67% of which were single carriageways and Star Ratings were produced.

A quarter of vehicle occupant Star Ratings achieved 3-star or higher.

Between 2014 and 2015, a wide-ranging package including improvements taken from an iRAP Safer Roads Investment Plan was implemented by the Slovak National Motorway Company on a 327km sample of motorways and expressways identified as having potential for improvement by the SENSoR project.  The total cost was about EUR 40m.  As a result of this work, an estimated 355 deaths and serious injuries will be prevented over the next 20 years.  The percentage of the roads rating 3-star or better increased from 27-77%.
