3.1 Road Safety

Road Safety committee observes a fact that ninety percent of traffic deaths occur in LMICs, and then assesses and identifies the best practice of road safety activities for LMICs. Technical Committee 3.1 "Road Safety" also explores proven countermeasures that are effective in reducing the likelihood and severity of crashes at a given location. Remarkably, "Road Safety Manual" and "Road Safety Audit Guideline" are to be updated, pursuing efforts to disseminate and encourage the application of these manuals. Technical Committee plays a fundamental role in providing access to well-chosen safety measures and its dissemination among LMICs. (extract from the Strategic Plan)
