NEDA6 CP 2019: The Engineering Aspects of Policy and Governance in Road Safety in Western Visayas, the Philippines

Road safety has long been a worldwide challenge. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has noted a 1.25-million death toll in 2010 or one person losing his life every 25 seconds which prompted it to raise awareness in road safety by declaring 2010-2020 as the Decade of Action for Road Safety. With Western Visayas in focus, the study looked into three factors namely, number of fatal and injury-resulting road crashes, national primary and secondary road density, as well as review of the said laws. It aimed to determine and classify high risk cities and municipalities in Western Visayas through a tool called Locational Vulnerability Score (LVS); to identify risk factors in road traffic injuries of road crashes based on available data; and determine key infrastructure considerations in policy and governance while also accounting the standards set by the Department of Public Works and Highways.
