Ranking for European road safety

Objective

The objective of RANKERS is to develop comprehensive and practical guidelines for road infrastructure safety to enable optimal cost-effective decisions by road authorities and road operators in their efforts to eradicate dangerous road sections and promote sustainable roads.

Specifically, these guidelines will cover:
- A comprehensive and practical catalogue of scientifically-researched road infrastructure safety recommendations ranked according to their efficiency, and
- An index used for assessing and monitoring road safety.

RANKERS is unique in that it proposes addressing the infrastructure safety pillar in its interrelation with driver behaviour and vehicle design, by means of extensive data collection and analysis, field tests and virtual testing. Until now, important gaps in Europe's research efforts have prevented showing the tangible results that an integrated approach to road safety could unleash.
