CIVITAS Case Study - Safe and Secure Roads in Brescia

The measure consisted of implementing two different tools: the road safety monitoring centre and the road safety urban plan “Piano della Sicurezza Stradale Urbana” (PSSU). The monitoring centre transfers georeferenced data - data which defines a physical location through map coordinates - to a web platform in real time. Integrated with smart devices (palmtops, tablet, phones), it allows for instant communication with enforcement agencies such as Istituto Nazionale di Statistica, National Statistical Institute (ISTAT). Data is also fed into the PSSU (Road Safety Urban Plan). The PSSU provides administrators with a local planning tool to improve road safety. The PSSU database shares information with the monitoring centre.
