XXVIIth World Road Congress
Proceedings of the Congress

Technical Session 3.1 - Road Safety

Wednesday, October 4 09:30 - 13:00
Chair: John MILTON, Chair of PIARC TC 3.1 on Road Safety, USA
Room: South Hall 1, 1st floor

Road crashes continue to be a leading cause of death and serious injuries worldwide, which in turn leads to significant economic and societal impacts for countries of all sizes. Yet, the approaches to solving road safety problems are different based on the contexts and needs for a given roadway type or function. In lower- and middle-income countries (LMIC) road safety of vulnerable road users is a particular interest given the over representation of fatalities and serious injuries for these road users.

Presentations relate to the following topics:

  • Approaches to dealing with road safety issues for LMICs
  • Road safety audit and assessment applications for countries of all sizes
  • Applications for road safety inspections on existing roads
  • Proven safety countermeasures
  • Safe System approach.

Laura REY RAMOS (Spain), winner of the PIARC Prize "Road Safety" supported by the USA, presented her paper at this session.
