Recent RESEARCH “ROAD SAFETY ASSESSMENT BASED ON A ROAD SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDEX”- PhD Thesis delivered by Milan Tesic
This doctoral dissertation has been successfully defended on 14th September at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic, University of Belgrade, Serbia and is the latest systematic review of different methods of road safety assessment and gives new way of thinking about how to use Road safety performance indicators (RSPI) for road safety assessment.
The following scientific contributions that have been achieved through the doctoral dissertation:
- Development of an original, scientifically recognized and appropriate methodology for calculating the road safety performance index with a limited number of indicators that can be used for reliable and credible international cross- country and national cross- territory comparisons;
- Selection of the most contributing relevant safety performance indicators (within the values of the road safety performance index), for a specific time period or a specific period;
- Standardization of safety performance indicators (or identification of the list of common key indicators) providing simple comparisons in conditions of limited availability of data for the largest possible number of territories, in a specific time period, or for a larger number of time periods, and
- Defining the phases of the systemic introduction and monitoring of safety performance indicators in concrete territories.
This is part of the extensive programme of road safety research being undertaken at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic, University of Belgrade, Serbia. Further information from Prof. Krsto Lipovac, PhD (krsto.lipovac@IRSCroadsafety.org) or from Milan Tesic, PhD (firstname.lastname@example.org).
