Road Safety Measures

Due to the rebound in the number of traffic accidents that have taken place during the last few years, developed countries have adopted a series of special safety measures, which join the investment made over the past year for the Infrastructure improvement.

In this article, we will describe in detail the efforts that have been carried out and the extraordinary measures that have already been implemented in ensuring safety of lives and vehicles on the road.

Safety Measures On The Road

There have been various implementations by the government of different developed and developing countries against road accidents. These include the setting up of speed bumps and rubber parking blocks at strategic places, but that’s not all. Let’s see some more;

Installation of rough bands

The implementation of rough groups in 3,000 kilometers of sections with a rating of especially dangerous was carried out, both on the shoulders and on the central axis. The purpose is none other than to reduce road exits and frontal collisions, as a consequence of the invasion of the opposite lane.

Limitation of overtaking zones

In some countries, there is an increased number of conventional roads which have been prohibited from being overtaking zones, with continuous double track signaling and beacon, when possible.

Hazardous intersection treatment

The installation of preventive dynamic signaling systems can be carried out in a total of 40 intersections with multiple paths.

Signposting of sections of pedestrians

To reduce pedestrian abuses on roads that are highly frequented by them, warning signs were installed with light beacons, equipped with a push-button, so that the pedestrian can operate them and warn drivers of their presence.

Nighttime speed checks on border traffic and delivery vans

To the usual nighttime checks of a generic nature, this type of specific control was added, during which the driver is identified and the documentation verified, as well as the alcohol and drug tests.
