The 3-day training session “Introduction into the road infrastructure safety management and safe system principles (according to the EU Directive 2008/96/EC)” aimed to present to the participants key road infrastructure safety aspects based on best EU and international practices which led to a high level of road safety in the respective countries. The trainees learned how to improve the approach on building a safe system concept which entails a significantly reduced number of road traffic accidents leading to a lowered number of mortality cases and occurrence of injuries. Other topics included improvement of the National Road Safety strategy. Also, the participants discussed the road infrastructure safety management in line with the EU Directive 2008/96/EC and best practices and how to improve the road safety audits in the Republic of Moldova.
