A problem of the safety of vulnerable road users in Montenegro

Research on the safety of vulnerable road users in Montenegro and in the European Union found that pedestrian fatality rates are the highest, followed by motorcyclists, and then cyclists. In the European Union, fatality rates are decreasing for all groups of vulnerable road users, while in Montenegro the fatality rate of pedestrians and cyclists is decreasing. The safety improvement for vulnerable road users is less successful than that for people in vehicles. Pedestrians in Montenegro are at the highest risk in the European Union. In Montenegro, pedestrians and cyclists are most vulnerable on the streets in the most developed settlements, while moped riders and motorcyclists are most vulnerable on the main roads. The implementation of control measures led to a turning point, and further improvement was obtained after implementing safety campaigns; for greater improvements, it will be necessary to establish local institutions for traffic safety management.
