Donostia-San Sebastian shared management and monitoring of road safety activities with civic organisations such as associations for drivers, cyclists, motorists, people with disabilities and elderly. This participatory approach was expected to be an effective means to improve road safety activities.
The main objective of the measure was to:
- Reduce the number of accidents.
Donostia-San Sebastian run an awareness raising campaign, set up post-accident attention services, monitored progress and installed radar systems for speed controls at three locations. The Road Safety Pact was in line with the European Road Safety Charter and was based on the city’s Plan for Traffic Safety and Security from 2007. The design of this plan already involved a number of civic associations.
