A policy paper outlining recommendations for vulnerable road users in EU countries with below average road safety records.
Collection of research worked into topics and road safety policy recommendations.
Recommendations pertinent to safe route planning include:
Local authorities should provide shorter and safer routes for pedestrians and cyclists by ensuring that trips are short and routes direct and that the quickest routes are also the safest.
In order to promote safer route choice, travel time should be increased on unsafe, undesired routes and decreased on safe, desired routes.
Safe routes to school -type schemes should be developed in order to increase the safety of children.
Themes: safe routes, travel time
No primary findings but a recent policy paper demonstrating the role that safe route planning should have in improving road safety.
