Policy making in Slovenia is centralised, with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Spatial Planning responsible and other ministries and parties involved. Improvements in road infrastructure are the responsibility of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Spatial Planning, Slovenian Roads Agency.

Slovenia has adopted Vision Zero, aiming for a traffic system with no fatalities or serious injuries.

The National Programme for Road Safety for the period 2012-2021 was launched on 11 May 2011, coinciding with the start of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety.

The Strategy outlines the vision and objective for road safety over the next decade and sets as its priority the carrying out of further measures to improve road safety. The programme’s priority objective is to reduce the most severe consequences of road accidents – with a targeted reduction of 50% in fatalities and 50% in severe injuries. The strategy also includes a the goal to increase seatbelt use up to 98% by 2021.

To attain this objective, the Programme aims to implement measures effectively and to generate political will and social support.

The Automobile and Motorcycle Association of Slovenia (AMZS) is the largest road assistance provider in Slovenia. Established in 1909, the Association incorporates 83 local auto-clubs.

Risk Mapping

Comprehensive Risk Mapping for 6,500km of the state road network has been carried out in Slovenia regularly since the Automobile Association of Slovenia’s invovlement in the European Road Safety Atlas – state roads covering both national and regional routes. The EuroRAP network accounts for 18% of the total public road network length but 65% of all road fatalities.

Slovenia’s high quality motorway network, financed by vignette, is among the most modern in Europe. The motorway death and serious injury rate on the 770km of Slovenian motorways is about 7 times lower than on other main and regional roads.

As part of the SENSoR project which AMZS was a Partner, the Risk Map was updated for the 2010-2012 data period.
