Dataset: Strategic Research Initiative - Road Safety, 2015

Abstract

The purpose of this project was basic research and accumulation of knowledge on traffic safety. The project was a so-called SIS that lasted from 2011 to 2015.  

The project proposes research in three main areas:  
1) Basic questions and methodological issues, which include accident reporting and accident modelling, the valuation of road safety and the evaluation of road safety measures.  
2) Interactions between road users, system elements, and technology, in which the main areas include the high risk faced by young and inexperienced drivers, elderly road users, observation of road user behaviour in natural settings, intelligent transport systems and behavioural adaptation and effects of promoting non-motorized transport.  
3) Factors influencing road safety and road safety policy, which comprises public acceptance of safety levels and safety measures, safety management and organization and cross fertilization of safety theories between different modes of transport.
