|GP: Research into improving road traffic safety by means of transport engineering and organizational measures - Czech|
The project is targeted at decreasing the road traffic accident rate and reducing accident consequences. This goal should be reached by optimizing the particular road design features and optimizing spatial arrangement of roads. This includes amending selected technical regulations with respect to new legal regulation concerning road traffic. The project should also introduce some foreign experience and practices into the situation in the Czech Republic and it should improve road traffic safety in towns and cities by using up-to-date designing methods.The project deals with the problems concerning road traffic safety from a continual and comprehensive perspective.
Optimizing the design features of the particular constructional measures and their broad application may result in considerable reduction of consequences of road traffic accidents. If the new solutions are applied properly, serious consequences of accidents can be reduced by 10-20%, which represents an annual cut of CZK 4-8 milliard). An appropriately designed transport engineering solution usually improves the effects upon the environment.
Planned Course and Objectives:
* Design features of roads (legislation researches, researches of survey reports of selected European countries)
The Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Czech Republic
Duration of the Project:
03/2001 - 12/2005
