TThe European Red Cross Road Safety Campaign 2007-2008
Between April 2007 and June 2008, National Red Cross Societies will deliver programmes to increase awareness, knowledge and respect of road safety rules and behaviours as well as to promote first aid amongst the general public.
Comparative study of road traffic rules and corresponding enforcement actions in the member states of the european union
The core objective of this study, developed during the year of 2003, was to compare the set of road traffic rules and corresponding enforcement among Member States of the EU, keeping in mind the fact that legal regimes and enforcement processes vary considerably from country to country. Considering the wide scoped coverage of national legislation, this study has concentrated on topics that are, either within the competencies of the EU (taking into account current legislation) or where the EU action might potentially add value, namely where the establishment of policies may be done more effectively at the EU level, rather than at national or sub national level.
European Traffic Police Network
The TISPOL Organisation has been established by the traffic police forces of Europe in order to improve road safety and law enforcement on the roads of Europe. The main priority is to reduce the number of people being killed and seriously injured on Europe's roads. Enforcement of traffic law and education, where appropriate, will make a significant contribution to reducing the carnage on our roads. This is evident in a number of TISPOL member countries.
Tøi - The Institute of Transport Economics (Transportøkonomisk institutt)
The Institute of Transport Economics (Transportøkonomisk institutt) is a national institution for transport research and development. The main objectives of the Institute are to carry out applied research on issues connected with transport and to promote the application of research results.
Analysis of TRaffic Accident Causation in Europe and the benefits of safety systems
The identification and the assessment (in terms of saved lives and avoided accidents), among possible technology-based safety functions, of the most promising solutions that can assist the driver or any other road users in a normal road situation or in an emergency situation or, as a last resort, mitigate the violence of crashes and protect the vehicle occupants, the pedestrians, and the two-wheelers in case of a crash or a rollover.
The determination and the continuous updating of the etiology, i.e. causes, of road accidents as well as the causes of injuries) and the assessment of whether the existing technologies or the technologies under current development address the real needs of the road users inferred from the accident and driver behaviour analyses.
TrafficLinq is a an extensive directory of links covering issues regarding road traffic and transportation. The site is aimed at traffic and transportation professionals.
TrafficLinq is run by a Dutch group of professional traffic journalists. A team of editors selects the best sites on ITS, public transport, transportation planning, traffic engineering, sustainable mobility, congestion pricing, traffic information, parking, traffic safety, bicycling, commuting, software, organizations and traffic industry.
There is also a large section on books on traffic and transportation. And you can scan all transportation sites with one query.
System for driver training and assessment using interactive evaluation tools and reliable methodologies
Driver assessment and training has not followed the rapid evolution of in-vehicle passive and active safety systems and telematic aids. Hence, drivers today are using or about to use equipment for which they have not been trained. The interactive multimedia s/w tool and simulators of TRAINER will enhance the risk awareness of novice drivers, while they will be acquainted with existing and emerging in-vehicle ADA systems (i.e. ABS, EDS but also Adaptive Cruise Control, Navigation aids, etc.) and they will be fully supported in all the driving task levels (Strategic, Tactical and Control) by adequate tools.
Transport- og Energiministeriet / Ministry of Transport and Energy
A modern society cannot function without mobility and access to energy. As individuals we must have the ability to move from one place to another and it must be possible to transport goods between manufacturers and suppliers and out to consumers there must be mobility. Mobility requires energy and access to energy is in itself a necessity for the manufacture of goods, for society and for the welfare of its citizens. The Danish Transport and Energy Ministry works on creating a good framework for transport and access to energy.
The TREE project (short for Transport Research Equipment in Europe) was financed by the European Commission as part of the Sustainable Growth programme and was carried out from 2002 to 2004. The main target was to create meaningful and cost-intensive research installations and equipment in Europe and to improve the exchange of information and developments about this topic through a network. By means of this project, Europe's competitiveness in the sustainable development of research equipment was to be improved. The TREE project was carried out in close co-operation with the INTRANSNET project (Network for research installations on various transport modalities).
TRIS is a bibliographic database funded by sponsors of the Transportation Research Board (TRB), primarily the state departments of transportation and selected federal transportation agencies. TRIS Online is hosted by the National Transportation Library under a cooperative agreement between the Bureau of Transportation Statistics and TRB.
TRL - Transport Research Laboratory
TRL is an independent, internationally recognised centre of excellence in surface transport issues. The organisation provides research based technical help which enables customers to obtain improved value for money, generate competitive advantage and a better understanding of transport problems. TRL employs around 500 staff with a wide range of professional disciplines, among them mathematicians, physicists, psychologists, engineers, geologists, computer experts and statisticians. Facilities include a state of the art driving simulator, a new indoor impact test facility, a 3.8 km test track, a separate self-contained road network, a structures hall. extensive library and conference centre.
Trygg Trafikk - The Norwegian Council for Road Safety
Trygg Trafikk is an umbrella organisation for the voluntary road safety work and serves as a link between voluntary associations and the road safety authorities.
The organisation shall due to its statutes promote the best possible road safety for all groups of road-users. Trygg Trafikk is given a special responsibility for promoting traffic education in kindergarten and school, and providing information and knowledge about road safety.
Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center Library
TFHRC is a federally owned and operated research facility in McLean, Virginia. TFHRC is the home of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) Office of Research, Development, and Technology. TFHRC provides FHWA and the world highway community with the most advanced research and development related to new highway technologies. The research focuses on providing solutions to complex technical problems through the development of more economical, environmentally sensitive designs; more efficient, quality controlled constructions practices; and more durable materials. The end result is a safer, more reliable highway transportation system.
