Database of EaP RS documents (agreements, case studies, publications, presentations, reports)

    e-Library of EaP Road Safety documents provides an overview of the key studies and recommendations in each of the six EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) in the five sectors of road safety that underpin road safety planning:

    Sector 1 - Road Safety Management
    Sector 2 - Safer Roads

    Sector 3 - Safer Vehicles

    Sector 4 - Safer Roads Users

    Sector 5 - Post-Crash Care

       

    Sector 1 - Road Safety Management
    Road safety is a multi-sectoral issue, which requires a multi-dimensional management system and adequate technical and financial resources that allow the responsible agencies to develop and implement appropriate strategies, policies and plans to coordinate the various actors involved in road safety at all levels. It also requires the establishment of appropriate safety support systems such as a crash data system and data analyses that permit the problem to be fully understood and appropriate action to be taken to reduce the numbers of casualties and their severity.

      Sector 2 - Safer Roads

    Infrastructure plays a crucial role in road safety. Well-designed roads can help people use roads safely and minimize the risk that a crash will occur. When a crash does happen, protective and forgiving road infrastructure can mean the difference between life and death.

    Sector 3 - Safer Vehicles

    Improvements to the crash protection and safety features in vehicles have been proven to reduce the numbers of road deaths and serious injuries. In recent years, there have been significant advances in vehicle safety that protect occupants and other road users and improves the ability to avoid crashes. Increasing the proportion of newer vehicles on roads with high standard safety features, both of company fleets and privately owned vehicles will substantially reduce risks for all road users – drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists.

    Sector 4 - Safer Roads Users
    All road users share responsibility to use the road system safely and responsibly, and with consideration for other road users. To change the behavior of the various road users and to protect vulnerable road users, awareness must be increased and attitudes changed of the citizens who use the road. Road users need to be made aware of the main risk factors that increase the probability of road crashes and the risk of them or others sustaining fatal or serious injuries so that they modify their behaviour to minimize such risks.

    Sector 5 - Post-Crash Care
    The likelihood of dying from a serious injury resulting from a road traffic crash is still too high in Armenia.  Absence of a single nationwide emergency number and uncoordinated action by rescue services can result in delays in getting urgent treatment to critically injured victims. Each 10 minutes of delay in extracting a severely injured person from a crashed vehicle can reduce chances of survival by 10 %. Thus, many people may be dying needlessly because of the insufficient first aid being available at the scene, slow extraction of injured persons from the damaged vehicle, slow transport to a health center or hospital, and in some cases, insufficient medical help at the health center or hospital.
