Road Traffic Safety Department at Motor Transport Institute has just started EU’ project Baseline which is Collection of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for road safety. KPIs are an integral part of the ‘Safe System’ approach to road safety and help to underpin national policies and, at European level, the European Commission’s Road Safety Policy Framework 2021-2030 and Strategic Action Plan on Road Safety.
Key performance indicators for road safety (KPIs) at European level are related directly to the prevention of death and serious injury to provide focus for intervention strategy and delivery. Road safety KPI are essential for the European Commission to monitor protection of road use, infrastructure, vehicles, post-crash care to achieve targeted goal to halve the number of road fatalities by 2020 and a long term-goal to move close to zero fatalities by 2050.
The Baseline project started in July 2020 and will end in July 2022; 19 EU Member States participate in the project with Vias Institute as a coordinator.
Each participating country will provide between one and eight national KPI values that are comparable across countries and meet the minimum methodological requirements of the European Commission. There will be five KPI collected in Poland for:
- Use of seatbelts and child restraint systems.
- Use of protective helmets by riders of bicycles and Powered Two-Wheelers
- Driving under the influence of alcohol.
- Distraction by a mobile device.
Collection and delivery of KPI are essential for EU Road Safety Policy Framework 2021-2030 – Next steps towards “Vision Zero”
