Conceptualizing Road Safety Management Through Territorialized Complex System: Context and Goals

Despite many efforts to improve road safety, the road accident statistics remain a concern throughout the world. This work, after considering for France in particular the possible reasons for this, proposes to extend the issue of Road Safety to the land planning problematic which responds to the characteristics of a spatialized complex system. The methodology used in the ANR program CRITERE mixes interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder purpose. It combines representations structured by explicit data models, and the more empirical concepts expressed by experts in charge of local public action. The tool provides a user-friendly mapping formulation of partners' opinions and conclusions, highlighting the possible correlations between forms and characteristics of the area, road safety measures, accident and infrastructure observed. It gives the possibility to identify, spatialize, qualify and compare areas for treatment. This application is placed in the perspective of hoisting the issue of road safety among the strategic concerns of territorial management.
