 In order to assist in adopting the vision and delivering on the objectives of Pillar II - as described in the Decade of Action Plan -  resources have been drawn together across four key "Focus Areas". 

Pillar II provides the support and tools needed to achieve safety benefits. The take-up and application of information provided within each of the four key Focus Areas of Pillar II will assist governments and road safety practitioners to achieve the goals of a Safe System.

The Focus Areas (FA) and their objectives are as follows:

  • FA1: The Successful integration of road safety into existing systems and policies.

Objectives: to outline key motivators/incentives to ensure that road safety is fully and successfully integrated into existing systems and policies within government, developments banks, etc., for road planning, design and construction.

  • FA2: The identification and application of Road safety infrastructure management tools.

  • FA3: "How-to" road safety solutions.

Objectives: to provide governments and road safety practitioners with evidence based targeted crash countermeasures in a how-to tips manner.

  • FA4: A model framework for road safety engineering capacity building.

Objectives: to provide countries with a practical framework for improving capacity in road safety engineering.
