In June 1994 the authors began a comprehensive project or road safety improvement in Poland, commissioned by the Minister of Transport and Maritime Economy, financed by the National Committee of Scientific Research. The above project called GAMBIT is to be carried out until April 1996 by a consortium of several research and professional units, managed by the Technical University of Gdansk. The GAMBIT project is composed of 4 phases of execution: Diagnosis (4 months), Conception (8), Project (9) and Final Report (3). The paper gives an overview of the first results on diagnosis of the traffic safety system in Poland. Among the main tasks in the first stage of execution of the GAMBIT project there were two important items: - identification of weak points, for example; lack of activities, lack of funds, lack of training, lack of coordination, decision making problems, key individuals being antagonists; - identification of strong points, for example: foreign scientific cooperation, key individuals or bodies in government or central administration, and individual sponsors.
