Road Safety Program 2005
Road Safety Program 2005 describes Finnra's
measures and objectives for road safety improvement. It specifies the Road
Safety 2005 strategy which is Finnra's policy for improving road safety.
Both the road safety strategy and the
complementing program have been written for Finnra. However, after the internal
differentiation of road administration and production in Finnra, road
administration is responsible for road safety objectives and their realization.
So the program mainly deals with activities of road administration.
Road Safety Program 2005 guides the planning of
action together with the other corresponding documents. When road management
programs are compiled, the road management actions which improve road safety are
finally chosen in accordance with the objectives set by the Ministry of
Transport and Communications and the financing framework of road management.
The road safety program has been compiled by a
team of experts which has also heard representatives of interest groups. Each
district has compiled its own road safety program in which national guidelines
have been adapted to regional problems. Finnra's Road Safety Program 2005 has
been summarized on the basis of the programs compiled by the districts and
central administration units. It was reviewed by the management of Finnra on
March 1, 1999 and by the board on May 3, 1999.
