Master Plans for Community Safety

1 February 2012

 The concept of Road Safety Master Plans was recognised with a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2009 when Tshwane - a South African city in transition successfully introduced its Road Safety Master Plans in collaboration with the community in partnership with the authorities.


Now  IRF has produced guidelines for communities to follow as they develop their own road safety master plans. They seek to provide a municipal authority with a starting point and a framework for its efforts. While they cannot presume to offer detailed technical information or cater for all the country-specific variations communities may need to address as they compile their plans, IRF hopes that this resource will enable more municipalities worldwide to tackle the stern challenges road safety presents to the health of communities and individuals.
The IRF Guidelines are currently being finalised for publication in CD-ROM form this Spring and we are hopeful they will be formally launched during the forthcoming Intertraffic Amsterdam 2012 event which takes place from 27-30 March.
