Road safety is a complex issue. To arrive at satisfactory solutions, it is essential to have a thorough knowledge of the underlying facts. In road safety engineering, these basic facts include accident, highway and traffic data. Using such data it is possible to investigate the underlying principles relating to the occurrence of various types of accidents, and to develop standards which incorporate safety measures into the design of roads. Also, it will help to identify and treat those components of the transportation system which result in the most effective improvements in road safety.
