ESTIMATED ASSESSMENT OF THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF DRIVERASSISTANCE SYSTEMS USED IN AUTOMATED VEHICLES ON THE LEVEL OF ROAD SAFETY IN POLAND

Strengthening road safety in the face of the enormous development of the automotive in recent decades is crucial. The safety benefits of automated vehicles are paramount. Automated vehicles have the potential to remove human error in road traffic, which will help protect drivers and passengers, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. The carried-out forecasts are pioneering for Polish road traffic conditions. In England, studies have been carried out to determine the estimated impact of

SMART PHOTONIC GUIDANCE SYSTEM FOR ROAD SAFETY

Despite the rapid and continuous progress in the construction of vehicles and accompanying improving road infrastructure, the road safety issue remains very serious. Especially, it concerns intersections and road junctions where nearly 30% of road accidents take place. The paper is focused on a new intelligent path displaying support system to be installed on intersections of complex geometry combined with multiphase traffic lights. It consists of optical projection of two different horizontal

Impact of the economic crisis on the roadworthiness of vehicles in the Republic of Croatia

The impact of the economic crisis, i.e. the decrease in purchasing power in the Republic of Croatia, has been reflected negatively on the sales of new road vehicles and the maintenance plan of used road vehicles. A comparison of the results of technical inspections on vehicle roadworthiness has indicated a slight increase in unroadworthy vehicles, with a tendency for this to increase. Unroadworthiness and the average age of vehicles amounting to 12.18 years prompt for thinking about road safety

Center of road traffic safety education for children and youths – modern educational center in road traffic safety

The paper is about the idea of establishment of road safety education center to improve road users behavior, which is in line with the National Road Safety Policy till 2020 of government of Poland. Through this center various educational activities, programs, European Union projects for road safety were launched since 2003. The authors have introduced those programs, showing their effectiveness as well have mentioned about future plan for expansion to achieve Vision Zero. The paper presents

INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL CAMPAIGNS PROMOTING USE OF SAFETY BELTS AND CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS: RESULTS OF SURVEY ON ROAD USERS BEHAVIOUR REGARDING RESTRAINTS

article is a new approach of presenting the relation between educational character of social campaigns on road safety and their dropping effect on accidents and fatalities’ statistics. Recorded annual decline confirms a need of periodic survey on road users’ behaviour and ongoing education of road users through mass media – to use safety restraints for children and adults, as the simplest and most-effective passive safety device in a vehicle, minimalizing the injuries during accident.

AGE OF A PASSENGER CAR AND ITS INFLUENCE ON ACCIDENTS WITH FATALITIES IN POLAND

1. INTRODUCTION Road safety is a major society issue on a global scale. In 2013, more than 30,000 people died on the roads of the European Union. For every death on Europe’s roads, there are estimated 4 permanently disabling injuries such as damage to the brain or spinal cord, 8 serious injuries, and 50 minor injuries [1]. The threat of road accidents in Poland has been very high for years. Fatalities per million inhabitants in Poland, despite downward trend compared to other European Union

FINANCING PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES FROM PUBLIC FUNDS

The paper deals with the issue of efficiency of public passenger transport through financial support from public funds from the perspective of improving road safety. The aim is to verify the hypothesis that financing public passenger transport from public funds is a significant tool to influence the number of passengers carried by individual automobile transport, and thus it can be used a tool for influencing road safety in a particular territory. The first part of the paper analyses the

Application of the AHP method to analyze the significance of the factors affecting road traffic safety

Over the past twenty years, the number of vehicles registered in Poland has grown rapidly. At the same time, a relatively small increase in the length of the road network has been observed. As a result of the limited capacity of available infrastructure, it leads to significant congestion and to increase of the probability of road accidents. The overall level of road safety depends on many factors - the behavior of road users, infrastructure solutions and the development of automotive

SERVICE AND REST AREAS IN TOLL MOTORWAYS IN POLAND: STUDY OF DISTRIBUTION AND FACILITIES

Service areas are places next to the road that provide services to motorists like petrol stations, restaurants, hotels, etc. Rest areas are zones near the road with a parking and some facilities, such as toilets and picnic areas, which are employed by road users during their travels. These areas play a vital role in road safety as they are demonstrated to reduce fatigue-related accidents. Moreover, in toll motorways, usually used for long-distance travels, these areas become essential as they

Travel demand management in the context of promoting bike trips, an overview of solutions implemented in Cracow

Car traffic in cities causes a decrease in travel speed, irregularity of public transport operation and, as a consequence for travellers, significant time losses. Because of congestion the accessibility to the destination points, especially those that are located in the city centre, is threatened. Other difficulties concern: road safety, increasing air pollution, traffic noise and global warming. Construction of new roads and transport facilities requires large financial resources and covers

and population was the IV. The objective is to determine the hotspots and examine whether the number of RTC cases in a given LGA is affected by the number of RTC cases of neighbouring LGAs and an instrumental variable. The hotspots include Oluyole, Ido, Akinyele, Egbeda, Atiba, Oyo East, and Ogbomosho South LGAs. The study concludes that the number of RTC in a given LGA is affected by the number of RTC in contiguous LGAs. The policy implication is that road safety and security measures must be

Driving speed is one of the most important factors in road safety, and speed not only affects the severity of a but is also related to the risk of being involved in a crash. Inappropriate speed is responsible for more than a third of all fatal accidents occurring on the roads. In Poland, the problem of speeding drivers is widely common. Hence, effective speed management and enforcement of speed limits on the existing road an important role. Possible solutions for rural roads are very limited
