It shows how affordable investment in simple measures has made major contributions in achieving the best possible safety standards. Just 1% of Britain’s roads have […]
There are many ways to evaluate improvements to road infrastructure to check that they are reducing risk. It is possible to monitor safety at particular locations or over networks as a whole. Over a long period of time, it is possible to check if the number of crashes has reduced at locations where infrastructure has […]
This is a review of 11 studies that make comparisons between average crash rates, costs or severities and the Road Assessment Programme’s Star Rating or Road Protection Score (RPS). Work from Australia, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden (two studies), the United Kingdom and the United States is included. Different methodologies and approaches […]
