Abstract

Road safety ranking and impact assessment of road infrastructure projects have been requested for the trans-European road network. However, science-based safety evaluation tools are not widely available or used. If the allocation of road safety improvements is not based on scientifically proven tools, the effectiveness of safety work is brought sharply into question.
