Road safety data collection

While there are some important efforts to work on the improvement of road safety data collection at the European level, there is very little data on local and urban road safety which can be used to benchmark initiatives and establish meaningful analysis across borders. There are several reasons for this, in particular the lack of common indicators for urban road safety in Europe, and the various types of methodologies for accident reporting and data collection.

During the past years, Polis has facilitated the exchange of information on this topic between local authorities, researchers and interested stakeholders. We have gathered data from several European cities and local authorities to start building a European database on urban road safety.

A template with agreed indicators has been defined and can be downloaded here as ‘urban road safety data collection template’. All interested local authorities are invited to fill this template and to send the data to Polis secretariat by e-mail. All data will be handled confidentially.
