The Directorate General for Enlargement of the European Commission TAIEX and the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) organised the international conference on Charting Commitments to Road Safety in Europe. The conference took place in Brussels (12 – 13 October 2010). NTUA presented ‘An Observatory for Road Safety – a framework for the efficiency assessment of road safety measures’.
A Cost-benefit analysis has been released by the European Road Safety Observatory as prepared by the SafetyNet project. A recent road safety impact assessment is used to illustrate the findings of cost-benefit analyses of road safety measures, showing which measures are found to be the most cost-effective. There is still a large potential for improving road safety by using cost-effective road safety measures. Analyses in Norway and Sweden – both of which are comparatively safe countries – suggest that fatality reductions of about 50 % can be realised by applying cost-effective measures.
