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.
Description: This is Restricted Access. The report was prepared for the European Transport Safety Council, Brussels.
