SOL and road safety in CEUS and globally
SOL is a project cofinanced by the European Programme of Territorial Cooperation “Central Europe”. It represents a significant regional road safety programme and it will contribute to the global road safety with critical knowledge, experience and tools This project, with a total amount of 3,5 millions of Euros, is developed and coordinated by ALOT, the Agency of East Lombardy for Transports and Logistics (controlled by the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona e Mantova). SOL involves 8 countries of Central Europe area: Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary. The project aims at giving professional qualities, experiences and tools to local public administrations to increase the road safety in their competence areas.
SOL is linked to global work - it seeks to assist communities in CEUS implementing the main recommendations of the World report on road crash injury prevention (World Bank), including an overall increase of political commitment towards road safety, developing activities based on evidence rather than “ad hoc”, developing strategies and action plans, allocating resources to the main road safety risks, implementing projects, monitoring and evaluating impacts.
Materials and tools produced within SOL will help benefit road safety in the region and can inform and contribute to similar action in other regions of the world.
SOL also brings significant and needed funding towards an increasingly deadly and common public health issue in the CEUS region and world.
