12. Monitoring and Evaluation of Road Safety Interventions

 

Key messages

  • Monitoring and evaluation are often overlooked, but are essential for the effective management of road safety.
  • Monitoring refers to the systematic collection of data regarding the performance of a road safety programme or intervention during or after its implementation. Evaluation involves the analysis of this data to determine the effect of the treatment or program.
  • There is a requirement to constantly monitor progress against road safety targets (intermediate and outcome).
  • There is also a need to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of infrastructure interventions. There are currently many gaps in knowledge regarding the effectiveness of interventions, especially in LMICs.
  • Techniques and tools are available to help in this important task.
