Just four types of collision account for 80% of fatal crashes on inter-urban roads across Europe. The design and standard of these roads determines the extent to which collisions occur and the severity of the resultant injuries. Mass action programmes provide the opportunity for systematic large-scale upgrading of sections of the road network with the […]
