Many professions have a direct responsibility for road safety. One of these is the road and traffic engineering profession. Various studies have indicated that perhaps 40% or more of accident reductions which could reasonably be expected on the road system can accrue from the provision of safer roads. The following seventeen chapters provide a structure for this book's discussion of road safety engineering: 1. The Nature and Dimensions of the Road Safety Problem; 2. Safety Management Systems; 3. Human Factors in Road Traffic; 4. Data Needs and Limitations; 5. Hazardous Road Locations; 6. Diagnosis of Road Accident Problems; 7. Development of Countermeasures; 8. Road Design; 9. Intersections; 10. Delineation, Signing and Lighting; 11. Road Maintenance and Construction; 12. The Roadside; 13. Traffic Management; 14. Vulnerable Road Users; 15. Road Safety Audit; 16. Road Safety Program Appraisal; 17. Monitoring and Program Evaluation.
