|Abstract: ||Accident and casualty databases are an indispensable tool to allow for objective assessment
of the transport safety problem, the identification of priority areas for action and for
monitoring the effectiveness of countermeasures.
Such databases at European Union level are needed to describe the current state of
transport safety across the EU, to help define target levels of safety for each of the transport
modes and to facilitate a data-led systems approach in defining strategies.
The process of creating a range of common data sources necessary for the development
and monitoring of the Common Transport Policy began in 1993. Progress has been
achieved, especially for road transport, but for other modes basic kinds of data are lacking at
EU-level. In order to allow meaningful analyses within each mode and comparison across
the modes, further progress is needed.
The purpose of this report is to review the progress made in the development of databases
on accidents, casualties and exposure measures for each transport mode and, where gaps
exist, to try to identify various options for EU action.|
