Abstract

The aim of the paper is to introduce the most important steps of a methodology focusing on the transplantation of an up-to-date national system responsible for monitoring traffic accident blackspots. Blackspot analysis methodologies can be based on ranking locations by accident rate (accidents per vehicle-kilometers or per entering vehicles), or using accident density (acc/km/year or acc/year) or using a combination of the two. Accidents occur with higher density at these relatively high-risk sites. The paper sums up the most important steps of transplanting a new methodology, which contains the revision of the existing methodology, analysis of data, countermeasure development, investigation of technical specifications and monitoring.
