Group Description

SOL is a multi-stakeholder project initiative that strives for improved road safety in the region of Central Europe and beyond.

Working approach
Political commitment, professional capacity and institutional structures are not robust enough in many of the countries to stem the growing number of deaths and injuries from road crashes. Therefore, a transnational working approach is favoured in order to facilitate mutual learning processes that envisage a higher level of professionalism in dealing with this crucial issue.

Road safety is best achieved when the whole population shares a culture of road safety. When there is a culture of road safety, the providers and enforcers of road traffic systems (vehicle manufacturers, road traffic planners, road safety engineers, police, educators, health professionals and insurers) take responsibility for ensuring that their products and services meet the highest possible standards for road safety. Road users take responsibility by complying with laws, informing themselves, engaging in safe road behaviour, whether individually or through nongovernmental organizations.

SOL is a dynamic transnational project aiming to improve the quality of life for citizens and communities in the Central European Space by preventing road crash, road trauma and economic loss through helping local communities take ownership for:

1. Increasing the knowledge and skills of local professionals about effective road crash and road trauma prevention measures, based on European, regional and global good practice, as part of a sustainable urban transport approach;

2. Strengthening road safety management and coordination in the participating regions/cities by facilitating the development of multi-sector and multi-disciplinary teams to coordinate action to prevent death and trauma caused by road crashes in their communities;

3. Increasing political commitment for road crash and road trauma prevention.
