Title

METHODOLOGY TO DEVELOP ROAD SAFETY INDEX AND EVALUATION FOR THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES

Abstract

Road traffic injuries remain an important public health problem at global, regional and national levels. It is estimated from the WHO report (2009) that over 90% of the world’s fatalities on the roads occurs in low income and middle income countries, which have less than half of the world’s vehicles. Road safety being a complex topic to study, the problem itself is underestimated in many countries, especially in developing countries where the issue is challenging. In recent years, the interest in the use of indicators and indices are rapidly increasing along with its measurement followed by evaluation. RSI is one such index used to develop a methodology to identify road and its infrastructure deficiencies related to road safety. This is a handy tool which can be made available readily to obtain the road performance which can be evaluated and audited. The methodology developed here is through qualitative approach and leads to the interventions to establish safer roads with a better level of service (LOS). Various parameters / indices which are measurable qualitative / quantitative are identifies underlining the phrase “We can’t manage what we can’t measure” by Robert Kaplan (Harward Business School). This study can be used as a readymade tool to know the road safety index, which demands the improvement measures, if necessary. In India, perhaps this is the first of its kind to assess the rating of an existing road.

Key Words

Road Safety Index (RSI), Vulnerable Road User (VRU), Value Score Charts (VSC), Accident trends & Micro analysis, Accident Cost & Economic loss, level of service (LOS).
