Road safety auditing from a background of crash analysis

The purpose of a safety audit is to identify issues which will have an impact on the safety of the final road construction, to eliminate these at the earliest possible stage in the project, and to improve user safety of the finished project. While good results can be achieved using comprehensive checklists developed from safety design codes, the results can miss a lot of the removable or reducible hazards that can be found using a crash scenario approach. Once a motor vehicle has started on a crash sequence, much of what is going to happen to it can be predicted. Searching for initiating causes, and following the crash sequences through from them, is a powerful procedure for identifying issues that need further safety analysis.
