SUSTAINABLE SAFE ROAD POLICY IN THE NETHERLANDS

This paper discusses the Dutch Sustainable Road Safety Policy, a preventative approach which is being added to the current curative approach. The policy aims to incorporate road safety in a structural way into the planning and construction of roads, transport policy, town and country planning and driving behaviour. The traffic system is considered from the point of view of a) the user, b) the planner and c) the traffic engineer. Guidelines are suggested for each category. The traffic system is then analysed from the point of view of the user and the supplier of the traffic system. It is suggested that road safety should be 'structurally included' into the activities of all the classes of activity involved. For the covering abstract see IRRD 875078.
