Abstract: This chapter presents the analysis of a road safety management framework in European countries and the identification of “good practice” for the optimization of road safety management processes, carried out within the DaCoTA research project. It then discusses the road safety management investigation model, and describes the data collection and handling procedures. Effective organization of road safety management is assumed to be one of the conditions for obtaining good road safety results at the country level. Country profiles of the road safety management systems in the 14 European countries were analyzed and compared to the reference “good practice” system. Road safety visions and targets appear to be strongly influenced by either European Union proposals or road safety “leader” countries in Europe. Almost all European countries have road safety strategies and programs, with the majority boasting the ambitious EU targets.
