  • How 3-star or better roads can cut death and trauma 2016

    How 3-star or better roads can cut death and trauma 2016

    A four page brochure titled 'How 3-star or better roads can cut death and trauma’ is now available by EuroRAP aiming to support its members and road safety professionals across the continent in their meetings with key policy makers. The brochure provides key statistics and cost-benefit analyses to make the economic case for improving road infrastructure in order to help reduce deaths on Europe’s roads by 2020 to less than 50% of their 2010 total of 31,500. It features case studies and national 3-star policy targets and sets out recommended policy goals.

  • EDWARD - European Day Without A Road Death 2016

    EDWARD - European Day Without A Road Death 2016

    The  Road Safety Unit of the European Commission's Directorate General for Mobility and Transport has launched a campaign with TISPOL called “EDWARD -  the European Day Without A Road Death”  which is scheduled for the 21st September 2016, during the Mobility Week (16th – 22nd September 2016). The objective of the campaign is to reduce the number of road fatalities and serious road traffic injuries to the aspirational zero on that day. 

    For more details on the Project EDWARD, please watch this short video.

  • UN Fourth Global Road Safety Week 2017

    UN Fourth Global Road Safety Week 2017

    The UN Road Safety Collaboration is organising the global campaign for the Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week, 8-14 May 2017. The Week will focus on speed and what can be done to address this key risk factor for road traffic deaths and injuries. Speed contributes to around one-third of all fatal road traffic crashes in high-income countries, and up to half in low- and middle-income countries. The Global Road Safety Week seeks to increase understanding of the dangers of speed and generate action on measures to address speed, thereby saving lives on the roads.

  • ITF - Safer City Streets 2016

    ITF - Safer City Streets 2016

    Safer City Streets is a new global traffic safety network, managed by the International Transport Forum and it is built for cities to share their experience and learn from each other. Cities address many challenges by working together and learning from each other - but so far not in road safety. Safer City Streets fills this gap by linking cities that are working to make their citizens safer in traffic. It provides city officials high-value information for better decision making, global networking and learning opportunities for city officials and the possibility to carry out research on topics of common interest. Member cities have access to policy-relevant data, a network of experts and targeted analysis.  

    NTUA has actively contributed to the methodological approach of the Safer City Streets initiative.

  • Mobile phone use, speed and accident probability of young drivers - 2016

    Mobile phone use, speed and accident probability of young drivers - 2016

    A paper titled 'Mobile phone use, speed and accident probability of young drivers' authored by George Yannis, Leonidas Roumpas and Eleonora Papadimitriou is now published in Advances in Transportation Studies. A driving simulator experiment was carried out, in which young participants drove in different driving scenarios: urban and interurban areas, good or rainy weather, with or without the occurrence of unexpected incidents. Log-normal linear regression waw used to analyze the influence of mobile phone use and other parameters on the mean speed of drivers, whereas binary logistic regression was used to analyze the influence of mobile phone, change in speed and other parameters on accident probability. The results suggest that mobile phone use leads to statistically significant overall decrease of the mean speed. However, some drivers increased their speed during the mobile phone conversation, a case which has received little attention in the literature. Mobile phone use leads to significant increase of accident probability, indicating that the speed reduction when using a mobile phone is not sufficient to counterbalance the overall increased risk, especially when an unexpected incident occurs.

  • ETSC/TIRF - 15th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium, Brussels 2016

    ETSC/TIRF - 15th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium, Brussels 2016

    The 15th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium organised by the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) and Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF), will take place on 13-15 September, in Brussels. Alcohol interlock programs have expanded greatly in recent decades. Today, programs combine technological advances with more tailored and efficient monitoring strategies to deliver high-quality services. The theme of the 2016 Symposium is “Efficiency Through Automation”. As alcohol interlock technology evolves, it becomes increasingly important to understand how intelligent devices can be embedded in sophisticated vehicles and linked to database systems to make services more accessible and enhance road safety.

  • IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report 2016

    IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report 2016

    The International Road Traffic and Accident Database (IRTAD) of the International Transport Forum (ITF/OECD) published recently the full version of the Annual Report 2016, which comprises a synthesis of the main trends and road safety indicators for the year 2014 and preliminary data for the year 2015. It presents longer-term trends in order to better understand the developments taking place in the different countries.

    While the 32 IRTAD member countries made good progress in reducing road deaths in the first half of the UN Decade of Action – the number of road fatalities fell by 8.8% between 2010 and 2014 – this positive trend faltered in 2015 when the number of road deaths increased in at least 19 countries, while only nine countries managed to reduce or stabilise their road death toll in 2015. 

    Detailed validated reports for each country are illustrated in the full version of the IRTAD Annual Report. NTUA has contributed to the detailed report for Greece. link_btn02 link_btn02

About NRSO

logo.nrso.01The mission of the NTUA Road Safety Observatory (www.nrso.ntua.gr) is to support the Greek and the International Road Safety Community with current key road safety knowledge and data, which are gathered, analysed and organised within the research activities of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens, as well as within co-operations with various national and international road safety organisations.

The NTUA Road Safety Observatory has been developed within the framework of two European Union co-funded research projects, namely SAFETYNET - Development of the European Road Safety Observatory (2004-2009) and DACOTA - Road Safety Data Collection, Transfer and Analysis (2010-2012), with Scientific Responsible for NTUA, Professor George Yannis.
