Austrian Road Safety Programme 2011-2020

The Austrian Federal Government, in particular the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) as the main government body responsible for road safety, have set themselves the target of making Austria's roads among the safest in the European Union (EU).

Significant progress has already been achieved throught the first Austrian Road Safety Programme (2002-2010), but road safety figures for Austria are still only average for the EU as a whole, and even below average for the EU-15 countries. As a result, bmvit has worked in close cooperation with the members of the Austrian Road Safety Advisory Council's Roads Task Force to develop a new Road Safety Programme for the years 2011-2020.

Austrian Road Safety Programme 2002–2010 (Edition 2009)

The Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology presented the first Austrian Road Safety Programme in 2002 based on a scientific as well as interdisciplinary analysis by the Austrian Road Safety Board (KfV). The primary objective of this effort is the reduction of deaths and injuries to be achieved by effective implementation and financing of cost-effective safety measures, as well as securing political and social acceptance. This third edition of the programme represents the implementation status in 2009 and shows the challenges ahead till the end of 2010.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2013

The 2013 annual report again focuses on the Road Safety Programme 2011-2020, reports on the implementation of measures in its individual areas of intervention and outlines the resulting successes in the reduction of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads.

The report thus provides support to researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in developing, planning and implementing further road safety measures. This, in turn, establishes the basis for achieving the ambitious goals set in the Road Safety Programme for the period to 2020 and allows any necessary adaptations to the programme to be made in a timely manner.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2012

The 2012 annual report focuses on the realization of the Austrian Road Safety Programme 2011–2020, the implementation of the measures planned in its individual areas of intervention and the resulting successes in reducing the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads. This new structure will also be maintained in the reports that will be published in the coming years.

The report thus provides support to researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in developing,
planning and implementing further road safety measures. This, in turn, establishes the basis for
achieving the ambitious goals set in the Road Safety Programme for the period to 2020 – and allows any necessary adaptations to the programme to be made in a timely manner.

The newly created Annual Report 2012 was published in October 2013.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2011

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.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2010

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. The newly created RSP 2011–2020 was published in February 2011.

The Austrian Road Safety Fund (VSF) is set up within the bmvit with the goal of boosting road safety in Austria. The funds available for this are drawn from the road safety contribution paid when reserving a personalised number plate. These finances are used to fund projects to improve road safety. The bmvit specifies the topics in coordination with the goals of the RSP and the current trends in accident statistics.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2008/2009

Road Safety and halving the number of fatalities in road transport (see also White Paper “European Transport Policy”) is seen as a common task of all stakeholders on various levels not only in Austria but also in the European Union.

Central to this road safety work is the Road Safety Programme that has been set up in 2002 and lasts until 2010. From September 2009 on the programme for the next decade (2011-2020) is being developed.
