Life beyond the silver bullets [reducing the road toll]

Practitioners have had considerable success in reducing the road toll through the application of principles colloquially known as the '5E's' and 'silver bullets' of road safety. However, once the strongest trends and patterns have been addressed it is becoming increasingly difficult to find further road safety gains from engineering modifications to the existing network. Many lengths of road that have historically received treatments are being revisited and parallel proactive approaches are required to allow the identification of emerging risks. This paper examines whether practitioners have bullets left to fire and introduces a proactive approach to maximising road network safety, an approach which relies heavily on fostering internal and external relationships.
