Road safety within the "integrated system of transport safety"
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 16th International Conference Road Safety on Four Continents: Beijing, China. 15-17 May 2013, Linköping: Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
The concept of the “Integrated System of Transport Safety” in Poland is a novel solution, built upon the best practices available from only a handful of countries in the world. In the last few decades, the extent of applying integrated transport safety systems to improve transport safety systems has varied; nevertheless, studying the experience of the safest countries in the world we can say that enormous progress has been achieved in this respect. Progress includes both social attitudes and system solutions. Both these issues are of critical importance. Firstly, they involve the recognition of human rights to safety. This, however, raises the question of whether these rights to transport safety are actually respected? Practice shows that the execution of this declaration is very difficult and to a significant extent depends on the insistence and awareness of the public. The paper is documenting the three year research project “Integrated System of Transport Safety” commissioned by the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education in 2007.
