There are various possibilities to assess and to improve road safety. Most of the approaches used in practice nowadays are accident-based and thus reactive by nature. Increasingly, tools and approaches following the idea that prevention is crucial are also becoming known to road safety practitioners and professionals (e.g., traffic conflict-based analysis, road safety audits or network safety assessment).
The main purpose of this Special Issue is to investigate novel research ideas to determine advanced methods and tools for the assessment of road safety.
It covers a wide range of studies, including theoretical research, empirical practices, and review articles. The potential topics include but are not limited to the followings:
- Surrogate measures of safety
- Tools and approaches to evaluate the impact of road safety measures
- Vulnerable road users
- Autonomous vehicles, ADAS, ITS and technological developments, in particular human response to new technology
- Road safety policies
- Road safety campaigns
- Safer infrastructure design
- Road infrastructure safety management
- Impact of COVID-19 on safety
- Human factors related to road safety
This special issue will cover contributions featuring innovative methods and tools for the assessment of road safety, the reduction of road crash impacts, especially based on the prevention principle. Contributions featuring measures for road crash prevention and severity reduction, as well as examples of evaluations of these measures are also appreciated.
