Specialists of the SE “DerzhdorNDI” together with representatives of the Road Service and the National Police in the Kharkiv region conducted an inspection of emergency sections on public roads of the region.
During the survey, possible causes of accidents were identified and measures to improve road safety were set.
The main causes of road accidents can be referred to:
- violation of manoeuvring rules;
- exceeding safe speed;
- failure to follow the distance;
- driving to the oncoming traffic lane.
It was recommended that overtaking in areas of closed visibility should be prohibited by the application of continuous road marking and appropriate road signs.
On a section where there is a complex intersection and the total daily traffic volume is more than 28 thousand cars / day, it is recommended to consider the possibility of arranging n at-grade a traffic interchange in two levels.
In addition, it was recommended that pedestrian crossings, including those with contrast lighting, as well as the installation of traffic lights should be arranged in appropriate places.
Improving road safety is a priority for our Institute, the police and road owners, as taking into account such proposals significantly reduces the negative consequences of accidents.
