Abstract

The strategic risk of a country’s highway engineering is linked with howthat country accomplishes its strategic objectives. They are to protect road usersfrom death or injury, safeguard critical infrastructure and reinforce the rescuesystem. The paper gives an overview of road traffic risk models used for buildingtools for strategic decision-making in the area of road safety. They majority aremacro models built from available demographic, economic and technical data. Theoverview of the models shows a variety of methods for forecasting risk with factorand multi-level models as particularly useful models. Based on this, a generalconcept was developed of models of strategic societal risk on a road network.
