Integration of road safety in other policy areas: synergies and conflicts

This web text looks at what integration means in relation to several policy areas and examines three key policy areas in more detail: employment, environment and health. These topics were chosen as they arguably have the strongest links to road safety policy. A longer list of other issues are then discussed which represent a second tier of policy areas where there are clear links with road safety. These include trade and procurement, liveable cities, transport accessibility and equity, development co-operation, policing and tourism. The advantages and disadvantages of road safety policy integration are also discussed. On the positive side these include the added strength in achieving joint objectives, pooling of resources and greater efficiency. However, integration can highlight conflicts where reaching one objective such as road safety, may have disadvantages for another. On balance, looking at possible synergies and potential conflicts, the end result should emerge stronger for all involved.
