Road Crash Problem

 

 

  • Phase 3: Focus on systems-wide interventions, targeted results and institutional leadership- By the early 1990s good practice countries were using intervention focused plans setting numerical targets to be achieved with packages of system-wide measures based on results generated from ongoing monitoring and evaluation. It was clear that growing motorization need not result in increases in road crash fatalities, but could be reversed by continuous and planned investment in improving the quality of the traffic system. THE United Kingdom had halved its death rate (per 100,000 populations) between 1972 and 1999 despite doubling vehicle population. Institutional management functions were becoming effective as roles were identified, intergovernmental coordination processes were established and funding and resource allocation processes better aligned with the results. Sadly, the strengths of this approach can mask its weaknesses. The focus on safer people, safer vehicles, safer roads and safer systems diverts attention away from the road network which is the stage on which deaths and injuries occur.
  • Phase 4: Focus on Safe Systems long-term elimination of deaths and serious injuries and shared responsibility by the late 1990s two of the world’s best performing countries had determined that improving upon the ambitious road safety targets would require rethinking interventions and institutional arrangements. The Dutch Sustainable Safety and the Swedish Vision Zero strategies set a goal to make the road system intrinsically safe. The emphasis was on effectively managing the exchange of kinetic energy in a crash to ensure that the threshold of human tolerance to injury was not exceeded. Under these two systems, road deaths were seen as an unacceptable price for mobility.

A Safe System is dedicated to the elimination of deaths and injuries that undermine the sustainability of road transport networks and the communities they serve. In a Safe System, targets are milestones to be achieved on the path to the ultimate goal, but the interventions are determined by the level of ambition and not the targets. Innovation becomes a priority to achieve results that go well beyond what is currently known to be achievable. A Safe System’s core priority is to afford protection to all road users including the most vulnerable at risk groups such as pedestrians, young and old, cyclists and motor cyclists.
