Speed, Alcohol and Safety Belts as Important Factors Influencing the Number of Fatalities in Road Accidents in the Voivodships

Regions are the basic units of management in the European Union. So far factors influencing road safety in the regions have been little recognised. Based on literature review, some factors affecting traffic safety in the EU regions have been identified. Then data available on the voivodships in Poland in 2000-2004 have been gathered. The gathered data have been analysed and the most important factors influencing the number and effects of road accidents have been identified. The following paper presents preliminary results of a wider research programme on road safety in the areas of the voivodships.
