Road Safety Program and Data Needs Self-Assessment – Informational Report (2015)

Road Safety Program and Data Needs Self-Assessment – Informational Report (2015)

One of the challenges that road agencies often face is identifying suitable road safety programs for their jurisdictions given their size and characteristics. The main purpose of this project was to provide road agencies with the means to better understand the components of common road safety programs, and to measure their current data collection practices and safety programs against other similar Canadian jurisdictions. Road agencies can use this document to assess their current programs and strategies against peer agencies. It should be noted that this document does not identify what are the best practices in road safety management, it merely presents a “snapshot” of road safety practices in various Canadian jurisdictions.

Section 4 of this document provides a description of various road safety program components including:

  • Road Safety Vision / Action Plan
  • Integrated Road Safety Plan
  • Network Screening
  • Road Safety Audits
  • In-Service Road Safety Reviews
  • Safety Impact Studies
  • Before and After Studies / Evaluations
  • Collision Modification Factors
  • Safety Surrogate Measures
  • Education and Enforcement Programs

Section 5 summarizes the efforts to obtain information from jurisdictions of different sizes about their current road safety programs and relevant data collection practices.

Section 6 then provides the survey results which can be used by road agencies to compare themselves with similar sized jurisdictions. The document concludes with some closing remarks.
