Mapping where 75% of travel occurs across a road network helps achieve UN Target 4: To ensure that roads where 75% of travel occurs reaches a 3 Star or better standard.

iRAP is working with the regional road safety observatories and technical partners to help national and regional road authorities understand which roads carry 75% of travel (or similar local targets). This will make it faster and easier to identify which road networks to assess and monitor safety progress for.

To learn more about why prioritising safety on roads that carry 75% of travel, see iRAP’s Business Case for Safer Roads.
