Safety and Security

Safe and secure infrastructures and services for passengers and  goods

Safety and security are a core components in creating sustainable urban mobility, and are primary areas of action within CIVITAS, particularly in making roads safer and more secure for 'vulnerable' road users.

Improving the safety and security of modes can be an extremely important step in encouraging users to change (or even try) alternative modes, especially when they are perceived as 'unsafe' (e.g. cycling in cities with little dedicated infrastructure, or taking public transport at night).

Within this thematic group, safety and security measures cover infrastructure, education, technological and promotional measures.

Urban road safety is a persistent challenge for Europe. Europe’s vision to half the number of road fatalities by 2020 is on its way of being implemented, and other targets – such as the decrease of seriously injured - come into view. At the same time European cities are developing SUMPs.

Does anyone within the Safety and Security group know of readily accessible studies (i.e. URLs) or infographics that stress the level of road safety achieved thanks to painted bike paths (not necessarily separated by armadillos). A cost-benefit analysis/ratio would be a plus. Thanks in lieu.

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.
