Road safety audits are, nowadays, a tool to diagnose the problems presented by urban and interurban roads in relation to their safety, detecting possible inconsistencies and / or shortcomings in the design of all the elements that make up the road, as well such as the correct management of the same and the education and awareness of users.
Once the diagnosis has been carried out, the next step is the proposal of actions aimed at reducing the number of accidents due to causes attributable in some way to the road, its management or use with a minimization of the effects produced by the accidents.
What is the main objective of road safety audits?
The main objective of road safety audits is the evaluation and definition of potential risks of accidents on any type of road and its level of safety, during the planning, design, construction and commissioning stages, establishing a diagnosis of safety and proposing actions and measures aimed at eliminating or, failing that, reducing accidents, consequently minimizing costs derived from human loss or material damage.
