The objective of RIPCORD is to give scientific support to the European transport policy to reach the 2010th transport road safety target by establishing best practice tools and guidelines for road infrastructure safety measures. To develop and manage a safe road infrastructure in a cost effective way tools will be further established to assess the cost efficiency of different safety measures and recommendations on the best tools in a specific situation will be worked out. In some countries road safety audits and safety inspections have been established. The target of RIPCORD is to elaborate best practice guidelines for these tools, to spread the experiences and to make these tools applicable for all European countries. Moreover, the minimum requirements concerning the education of auditors will be defined. Regarding road accident black spots a multiplicity of definitions and elements exist. Most of these definitions are deficient from a theoretical point of view.
