Road safety in Austria is the joint responsibility of different policy-makers. At the heart of the road safety work is the Road Safety Programme (RSP), initially enacted in 2002.
Since 2010, the Austrian Road Safety Fund has issued annual, theme-based calls for tenders. The themes are determined by bmvit in coordination with the goals of the RSP and current accident statistics developments. Two tender invitations were issued in 2011; the first dealt with the theme: “Safe · Electric · Mobile” and the second focused on the theme: “Distraction & Fatigue”.
The newly created Annual Report 2011 was published in September 2012.
The Austrian Research and Technology Reports are status reports to the Austrian parliament on the nation’s federally funded research, technology and innovation.

The report were commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF), the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) and the Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth (BMWFJ).
A crash at 50 km/h without child safety seat is equivalent to a free fall from a height of 10 meter. A collision at only 15 km/h without child safety seat can be fatal for children. Without a child safety seat, the risk of death is seven times higher than with a child safety seat that has been installed correctly.
