Road safety manual : a guide for practitioners.


The new Road Safety Manual (RSM) is designed to help countries at every stage of infrastructure development to fulfill road safety objectives. It is aligned with key pillars for the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020: Pillar 1: Road Safety Management; Pillar 2: Safer Roads and Mobility; Pillar 4: Safer Road Users. Ths comprehensive resource builds on the broad range of knowledge and experience provided by PIARC in the first edition. It includes new thinking on road safety and offers a clear argument on why adopting a Safe System approach is crucial for your country. The Safe System approach aims for a more forgiving road system that takes human fallibility and vulnerability into account. Under the Safe System approach, everyone (public agencies, automobile manufacturers, road users, enforcement officials, and others) must share the responsibility for road safety outcomes. The manual is split into three parts and can be downloaded in chapters. Key principles for each of the topics are included and discussed in the sections, with case studies and links to detailed technical material and other references. Part I introduces the wide range of problems facing road safety professionals around the world and looks at the strategic issues involved in developing a management system.
