  • Collection of traffic safety indicators is an integral part of the process of ensuring traffic safety. Some EU member states already collect national indicators to measure the progress and effectiveness of road safety initiatives. Such indicators help to understand the problems affecting the traffic safety situation. They also help shape road safety policy at national and European level. The aim of the “Baseline” project is to determine the values ​​of the main traffic safety indicators of the EU member states. Each participating country will provide between one and eight national indicator values ​​that will meet the minimum methodological requirements of the European Commission and can be compared across countries. This project will also contribute to the strengthening of professional capacities across the EU, and in particular in those Member States
  • More about the project

In the project of collecting the main traffic safety indicators, the Transport Competence Agency (TKA), like other institutions of the participating EU countries, will conduct traffic safety studies and calculate the values ​​of traffic safety indicators according to the established methodologies: speeding; use of seat belts and child seats; disturbing the driver’s attention (use of telephones); car safety; road safety; provision of emergency medical assistance. All indicators calculated during the project will also be used in the general context of the European Union countries.


Traffic safety indicator Description of the traffic safety indicator
Speed Percentage of vehicles traveling at the speed limit
Seat belts Percentage of vehicle occupants correctly using seat belts or child restraints
Driver distraction Percentage of drivers not using a handheld mobile device
Car safety Percentage of new passenger cars with a EuroNCAP safety rating at or above a pre-set threshold
