"Bottom-Up" and "Top-Down" Approach for Defining Road Safety Strategy - Case Study: City of Belgrade

The process of forming road safety strategy is quite complex because it implies a system approach that consists of several more or less complex steps. The analysis of the existing situation, defining the problem and creating a strategic document are the basic steps in forming road safety strategy. Each one of the mentioned steps involves several activities that must be carried out. Implementation, monitoring and revision are the next steps in a life cycle of the strategy, which provide continuous monitoring and adjustment of actions and programs for road safety improvement. In this study, on the example of the strategic document for the city of Belgrade, the concept of defining strategy and key areas of road safety strategy, which uses a “top-down” and “bottom-up” information flow approach, was shown. The specificity of strategy creation lays in the fact that the city of Belgrade consists of 10 urban and 7 rural municipalities, therefore it was necessary to find a model of strategic document that would include all the problems in the city but in also in all 17 municipalities. The model presented in this study provides the creation of a so-called overarching strategic document and 17 action plans, for each of the municipalities, and the overarching document is obtained by the so-called ‘’overlap’’ 17 action plans.
