A new report published by ADEPT highlights the importance of using behavioural measures when evaluating route safety schemes.
The report, ‘Using behavioural measures to evaluate route safety schemes: detailed guidance for practitioners’, was launched at a recent ADEPT/CIHT seminar. It is designed to be used by local authorities as a starting point for understanding how to achieve robust evaluation of route safety schemes.
The report concludes that evaluation of the effectiveness of schemes is crucial, and that the use of behavioural measures in evaluation delivers considerable benefits.
ADEPT represents local authority chief officers and represents members’ interests by responding to European and UK Government initiatives and consultations, by promoting initiatives aimed at influencing Government policy and through the development of best practices.
