Annual Report 2011 Road Safety in Austria
Road safety in Austria is the joint responsibility of different policy-makers. At the heart of the road safety work is the Road Safety Programme (RSP), initially enacted in 2002.
Since 2010, the Austrian Road Safety Fund has issued annual, theme-based calls for tenders. The themes are determined by Federal Ministry in coordination with the goals of the RSP and current accident statistics developments. Two tender invitations were issued in 2011; the first dealt with the theme: “Safe – Electric– Mobile” and the second focused on the theme: “Distraction & Fatigue”.
