Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit – The Immersive Virtual Experience
Through the Virtual Reality experience, participants have a glimpse into a management methodology presented in the Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit. The toolkit helps conduct road assessments and identify corrective measures to reduce deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes. It uses examples of successful interventions implemented in the Federal District in Brazil to guide users on how to improve road safety initiatives.
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”).
