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:
Safer Roads and Mobility
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.
- FA1: The Successful integration of road safety into existing systems and policies.
Objectives: to identify and provide road safety practitioners with infrastructure management tools to assist them in undertaking road safety tasks, to enable them to evaluate, prioritize and monitor infrastructure and operational safety performance.
- FA2: The identification and application of Road safety infrastructure management tools.
Objectives: to provide governments and road safety practitioners with evidence based targeted crash countermeasures in a how-to tips manner.
- FA3: "How-to" road safety solutions.
Objectives: to provide countries with a practical framework for improving capacity in road safety engineering.
- FA4: A model framework for road safety engineering capacity building.
