Star Ratings and Crash Risk Mapping for a road network provide an opportunity to measure changes in road safety performance over time.
Star Rating performance tracking can measure the direct changes to road infrastructure and speed management over time while Crash Risk Mapping performance tracking can be used to monitor the total road system safety outcomes.
Trends in performance can be monitored and early action taken to address new issues and persistently high-risk roads. Improvements in performance can be celebrated as lives are saved. Performance tracking is essential in monitoring progress against Global Road Safety Performance Target 4.
