Abstract

Traffic accidents are a serious problem in every society. Traffic safety is a science that analyzes road accidents with material damage, lightly injured, severely injured and killed persons.This paper proposes that road safety investment can be optimised by the development of a road safety management model. Road safety strategies typically include a basket of engineering, enforcement and education/training measures but there does not appear to be any management model which permits the optimisation of road safety investment. The proposed model utilises linear programming to predict changes in road safety resulting from safety interventions. It is mainly based on research in the areas of engineering and enforcement since there is little published research on the correlation between education and accident reduction. The model output provides the accident reduction and associated costs resulting from feasible road safety strategies. This should benefit policy makers when allocating resources. This example will be good experience for Traffic safety management system in the Republic of Macedonia.
