The SOL Road Safety Guidelines

26 June 2013

Advice for Experts, Stakeholders and Decision Makers
 
A major objective of the SOL project is to produce guidance for both experts and practitioners and road safety decision makers on the key road safety concepts, including the principles of a Safe System approach to road safety management.
 
This guidelines document has two main sections: a guidance manual for experts and practitioners, and a shorter manual that highlights the key issues for decision makers.  Some material is common to both manuals but as each is designed as a freestanding document their complete texts are included in these Guidelines.
 
The manuals describe the global road safety situation in the context of the Decade of Action, and the  current road safety situation in Central European countries compared with other EU countries, showing the need for urgent action to address the road safety problem.  They include details of the SOL project’s aims and methodology and how it has been implemented through a range of pilot actions.
 

Guidelines can be downloaded here.  The latest SOL magazine can be read here.
