The purpose of this project was to provide a means for road authorities to better understand the components of a road safety program, and to measure their data collection practices and safety programs against Canadian industry best practice and other similar agencies.

A survey asking about road authorities’ practices relating to in-service road safety reviews and audits; network screening and data acquisition; safety policy documents; before and after studies; safety education and enforcement programs and related activities were conducted. There were 52 individual responses to quality control of the data. The populations of the responding jurisdictions ranged from 1090 to 2.7 million people.
