Methodology for road safety inspections

Areas of Expertise (1)


Although directive 2008/96/EG of the European Parliament and the Council of 19th November 2008 on road infrastructure safety management describes the procedure for safety audits in more detail, BRRC has chosen to start the implementation with the gradual development of a methodology for safety inspections. As part of this effort the team of BRRC’s Mobility, Safety and Road Management Division has investigated the state of the art in this area and carried out trial inspections in the field, under real conditions.

Steps in BRRC’s methodology

Two different examples of reports that may result from a road safety inspection are presented below.
