Risk Mapping and Performance Tracking
Risk Mapping showing the rate of fatal and serious crashes in Spain
have been published annually since 2003. From 2003 to 2012 analysis included the primary route network (RCE) comprising motorways, dual and single carriageways, extending to 24,340m. The EuroRAP network represents just 16% of Spain’s road length, but carries 52% of the traffic. More than one third (37%) of all fatal crashes outside built-up areas occur on these roads.
Risk maps have been available for the regional road network in Catalonia since 2002, with result spanning 6,347km. The EuroRAP network in Catalonia represents 52% of the road length, carries more than 86% of the traffic and 77% of all fatal and serious crashes.
Results are also available in various regions, focusing on the network managed by regional road administrations:
- Basque Country (2005-2006): 1,243km, regional main roads & dual carriageways.
- Murcia (2008): 1,476km, regional roads & dual carriageways.
- Lleida (2010): 825km, provincial roads.
- Aragon (2011): 1,152km, regional roads.
In April 2013, RACC published crash cost mapping showing for the national road network, showing that some 5% of the network exceeded crash costs of €200,000 per kilometre.
Motorcycle crashes account for 16% of all fatal and serious accidents on the RCE. This can rise to 75% on certain sections. 50% of these crashes occur within just 1,838km (8% of the network).
Together with the Road Safety Foundation in the UK, RACC released their 2014 Risk Map according the the 2020 Risk Bands.
