TRANSPORTATION SAFETY POLICY FOR THE HIGHWAY WITH A VIEW TO SAFETY OVER THE KILOMETRES

This policy describes the guidelines and priorities that the Quebec Department of Transportation and the automobile insurance industry of Quebec plan to adopt to reduce the number and the seriousness of highway accidents, while preserving the mobility of goods and people. The book addresses thirty issues which would have to be dealt with in order to improve highway safety. In relation to these issues, a number of strategies were outlined with attendant courses of action that could be integrated into a coherent plan. The strategies and courses of action are organized under four headings, which refer to the four factors involved in highway accidents that W. Haddon developed as part of his highway safety matrix in 1972. These four factors are human, vehicles, road environment, and socioeconomic environment.
