Ranking for European Road Safety
|Domain||Road and Tunnel Infrastructure|
|Duration||from 02/2005 until 01/2008|
The overall objective of RANKERS is to develop scientifically researched guidelines on road infrastructure safety enabling optimal decision-making by road authorities in their efforts to promote safer roads and eradicate dangerous road sections.
The safety analysis will address all types of existing roads (dual-carriageways, motorways, rural and urban roads), integrate human behaviour and vehicle technology considerations and consider both accident prevention and mitigation.
The project's tangible output will include an index used for assessing and monitoring road safety and a catalogue of remedial measures ranked according to their efficiency. Both measures will contribute to the emergence of a European culture of safe road engineering.
