CIVITAS Case Study – Road safety measures in Usti nad Labem

Usti nad Labem is committed to improving road safety in the city. To achieve this goal, the city performed a road safety audit of the most critical locations, such as frequented roads and intersections, local schools and locations with many traffic accidents. Safety deficits were revealed and specific, suitable road safety improvements for individual localities were developed. The municipality launched campaigns to raise awareness about safety issues and the causes and consequences of traffic accidents. Traffic education of children in the city was enhanced and a website dedicated to safety issues was put into operation.
