ECONOMIC EFFECTIVENESS OF ROAD SAFETY MEASURES: PROBLEMS OF EVALUTION. The calculation of the accident costs comprises two main components: losses from death and injuries and losses from material damages, with the following sub-components: (1) Costs of death and injuries; (2) costs of material damages; (3) indirect costs; (4) repair or replacement of vehicles; (5) temporary.

One objective, i.e. to improve comfort at public transport stops, has been virtually attained. Four other objectives – to improve road safety, lighting, tramway traffic and pedestrian crossings – have not been met. Evaluation budget The budget spent on.

Background Road traffic injuries (RTIs) are a growing but neglected global health crisis, requiring effective prevention to promote sustainable safety. Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) share a disproportionately high burden with 90% of the world’s road traffic deaths, and where RTIs are escalating due to rapid urbanization and motorization.Urban planning, also known as regional planning, town planning, city planning, or rural planning, is a technical and political process that is focused on the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks.
