The Road Safety Foundation has released a report titled ‘Engineering Safer Roads – Star Rating roads for in-built safety‘. Previous annual launches of Risk Mapping and Performance Tracking results have prompted the questions:

– What has been done on the ‘most improved’ roads?
– What is wrong with the ‘persistently higher risk’ roads?
– What should be done?

This report answers those questions with a focus on safe road design. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate pathfinding work carried out with the assistance of leading authorities on the application of Star Ratings in Britain.
