Introduction Study Context Following on from the government’s manifesto to an annual reduction in road deaths and injuries, the British Road Safety Statement 2015 (BRSS) set out the government’s commitment to invest further in continuing road safety activity, and to conduct a Road Safety Management Capacity Review (RSMCR). A RSMCR is a strategic assessment, benchmarking and capacity building tool, originally developed by the World Bank's Global Road Safety Facility, to guide investments and… Expand

This report presents the findings and conclusions of a short peer review of road safety policy in Korea. This was centred on a meeting of road safety experts from Korea and from OECD countries heldExpand
Recent experiences and divergent pathways to transport decoupling
TLDR
There is no single pathway to transport decoupling, meaning that a wide range of policies have been adopted by individual countries, and most pathways belong to the ‘Stable’ categories with mild fluctuations in the ranks over time. Expand

This paper is a synopsis of a major report by the WHO which collates information on crashes worldwide. It summarises the key findings and the recommendations of the report. The central theme of theExpand
Nilsson's Power Model connecting speed and road trauma: applicability by road type and alternative models for urban roads.
TLDR
It was found that the road environment is an important moderator of Nilsson's power model and the model appears satisfactory for rural highways and freeways, but does not appear to be directly applicable to traffic speed changes on urban arterial roads. Expand
Quantitative study of attitudes, motivations and beliefs related to speeding and speed enforcement
Speeding continues to be a significant issue in New South Wales (NSW) and preliminary data from 2009 indicates that it may be contributing to an increase in the road toll this year. Speed surveysExpand
Speed cameras for the prevention of road traffic injuries and deaths.
TLDR
The consistency of reported reductions in speed and crash outcomes across all studies show that speed cameras are a worthwhile intervention for reducing the number of road traffic injuries and deaths, but an overall magnitude of this effect is currently not deducible. Expand

The relative effectiveness of a hidden versus a visible speed camera programme.
TLDR
Compared with the localised effect of visible cameras on speeds and crashes mainly in speed camera areas, the hidden cameras had a more general effect on all roads. Expand
