This research aims to identify the basic parameters of an integrated road safety policy on the basis of the experience from the European Union countries, the European Commission and Greece. A theoretical model of the integrated road safety policy is proposed, which consists of five basic parameters, the setting of targets, the integrated approach, the efficient implementation, the coherence in time and the quantitative monitoring. This new approach of integrated road safety policy, dealing in a comprehensive way with the accident problem, seems to better meet the complexity of road accident problem and brings better results than the up to today fragmentary efforts. The implementation of an integrated road safety policy, based on the parameters pointed out in this paper can improve dramatically in the medium term the level of road safety in Greece.
