Potential for Enhancing Traffic Safety on Highways of Russia

P. 242-246.
Ichkitidze Y., Sarygulov A. I., Ungvari L.

The article investigates the correlation between the factors of enhancing traffic safety on highways and parameters of the economic growth in Russia and in countries with transition economy; such correlation does not always lead to traffic safety enhancement. As a rule, the population motorization (car density) level growth in such countries is not accompanied by efficient actions on accident rate decrease. Among the factors enhancing traffic safety on highways are the efficiency of traffic infrastructure planning (changing and removing traffic flows from cities’ centers, creation of a large amount of pedestrian and bicycle lanes separated from traffic flows) as well as harmonization of physical infrastructure and safety goals, ensuring conjugation of the developed transport infrastructure with the decrease of the share of private vehicle fleet and increase of the share of public transport.
