Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit
The Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit is an interactive e-learning tool that presents a management methodology that can be applied in the field of road safety to:
- Collect data on the number and location of deaths by road user type,
- Identify hazardous and critical road locations and sections where excessive numbers or severity of crashes occur,
- Outline corrective measures,
- Implement interventions and monitor results.
Available in multiple languages here.
Significant progress on road safety can be achieved through global cooperation, implementation of evidence-based strategies and engagement with all relevant actors, including the private sector, as well as additional innovative approaches.
With the aim of contributing to advance road safety, the United Nations Institute for Training And Research (UNITAR) developed the "Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit Learning App" which presents a practical management methodology that can be applied in the field of road safety.
The App provides in-hand practical solutions, participatory contributions from different stakeholders including the private sector, and results-based interventions. It highlights projects in which the methodology has been implemented and tested in cities in Brazil, China, Dominican Republic, India, Mexico and South Africa.
It also features a checklist to support users to monitor their progress throughout the different stages of the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” Toolkit’s methodology.

The toolkit helps conduct road assessments and identify corrective measures to reduce deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes.
Users experience a virtual immersion of a pilot project implemented in the Federal District of Brazil. The 360° virtual reality video showcases a total of nine interventions carried out in five identified high-risk areas (“crash hotspots”).
