New regulation for designing and operating work zones in the Czech Republic: Theory and the first practical experiences
2001 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [sv]

In the end of 1996 new regulations concerning work zone safety design and

operations were issued in the Czech Republic. The paper briefly presents

these new regulations. Until 1997 accident rates in work zones had the same

increasing trend as the rest of the road network. Following the application

of the new regulations there is a distinct decrease in accidents with both

slightly and seriously injuries. This positive result is confirmed when the

accidents are analysed more in depth. For example, since 1997 every year has

seen about 20% decrease of accident numbers in work zones caused by

inappropriate driver's speed.
