Good practices

Our members are dedicated to improving road safety and sharing their knowledge with the wider community. Here, you can explore our members' good practices – initiatives that have been assessed for their effectiveness in addressing a road safety problem and have proven results.

Young pedestrians and cyclists are vulnerable in traffic. Crash figures show that children and young people are more likely to be victims of road crashes when they start to travel independently and/or switch to a new means of transport with which they have less experience. Among young pedestrians and cyclists in Flanders, the number of road casualties increases from the age group of 6 to 11 years. Specifically among young cyclists, this increase continues in the age group of 12 to 15 years.
In the past, traffic safety and mobility education in primary education in Flanders was often limited to theoretical lessons on knowledge of traffic rules and traffic signs, usually for the age group of 6 to 12 years. With our practice-oriented pedestrian and bicycle certificates, we want to provide practice-oriented traffic safety and mobility education from kindergarten onwards (2.5 years).
We’re addressing multiple road safety problems:`

- Improving the work safety of road inspectors by reducing time being physically in the middle of the road and reducing multitasking while driving.
- Improving road safety for cars, motorcycles and bicyclist by reducing potholes and defect road inventory such as faded road signs, damaged bollards, etc.
- Improving road safety for pedestrians by mapping crosswalks with worn-out lane markings as well as pavement uplift that causes people to fall.

Zavarovalnica Triglav od leta 2015 ponuja mobilno aplikacijo DRAJV, ki spodbuja in nagrajuje varno vožnjo. Aplikacija z uporabo tehnologij telematike spremlja hitrost vožnje, premike telefona in sile med vožnjo. Aplikacija DRAJV prispeva k varnejši vožnji z nadzorom hitrosti, analiziranjem voznih navad in ozaveščanjem uporabnikov, kar zmanjšuje tveganja za nastanek prometnih nesreč, ki ostajajo globalen izziv. Glavni vzrok prometnih nesreč v Sloveniji je še vedno neprilagojena hitrost vožnje, aplikacija DRAJV pa tako s spodbujanjem vožnje s primerno hitrostjo pozitivno vpliva na prometno varnost, saj so aplikacijo DRAJV na svojih vožnjah uporabili vozniki 8-10 % vseh osebnih vozil v Sloveniji.

En večjih globalnih problemov je tudi uporaba mobilnega telefona med vožnjo, kar povzroča neosredotočenost na dogajanje v prometu in močno povečuje tveganja za nastanek prometne nesreče. Aplikacija DRAJV spremlja in ocenjuje tudi pogostost uporabe telefona med vožnjo in nagrajuje voznike, ki telefona med vožnjo ne uporabljajo.

Aplikacija DRAJV obravnava glavne izzive varnosti na cestah, kot so prekoračitve hitrosti, uporaba telefona, sunkovita pospeševanja, zaviranja in vožnje v ovinek. Aplikacija je posebej prilagojena tudi za voznike motornih koles in tako spodbuja varno vožnjo motoristov, ki so med najbolj ranljivimi udeleženci v prometu.

Na podlagi anonimiziranih podatkov voženj uporabnikov, ki so skupno prevozili več kot 1,6 milijarde kilometrov, smo izdelali tudi interaktivno spletno orodje »DRAJV zemljevid«, ki identificira nevarne cestne odseke v Sloveniji z vidika hitrosti vožnje in drugih parametrov, ki jih spremlja aplikacija DRAJV.
The Mobilidata program addresses the lack of centralized, timely and qualitative real time traffic warnings in the G2B2C ecosystem.

To fulfil the need of road users to receive and be able to cooperate with (return) real time traffic warnings, Mobilidata implemented for the entire Flanders- region and on the entire public road network the European defined C-ROADS standardized Cooperation model of C-ITS or Cooperative ITS. In Mobilidata 31 different use cases are addressed – see overview of all use cases under 7.2 -images

Mobilidata is the Flanders hub where real time road safety related information comes together from these sources:
• Governmental regional and local level: e.g. roadside infrastructure like traffic controllers, variable message signs,
• Private/corporate level: e.g. Directive 2010/40/EU, EU specified SRTI (safety related traffic information) - vehicle sensor based real time warnings.
• Road user ‘community’ based: Events reported, and event feedback generated by road users.

Each of these 3 source information systems has its strengths and weaknesses, offering a neutral environment where they can be combined and distributed to all interested in a non-commercial setting is possible in a road-safety promoting context.

Road safety information in Mobilidata can be clustered in 3 subgroups per topic in the 29 on-street use case list + an extra subgroup of 2 off-street policy related use cases:
• Road regulation & policies
• Warnings / dangerous situations
• Connected infrastructure / traffic lights
We are solving the two main unsettled topics in Camera and LiDAR Systems and human vision in traffic situations. The internally developed Visibility Label, featuring a new universally applicable reference color, addresses the first topic, which is the lack of a universal method for quantifying the visibility of complex shapes such as cars, bikes, and busses. Crystal Glass Pigments provide a solution for the second unresolved issue, focusing on improving the functionality (i.e. visibility) of coatings on vehicles. By formulating new colors with this innovative additive, the coatings become significantly better visible for camera systems, human vision at night, and LiDAR systems 24/7.
