This project, performed for the Traffic Inspectorate Netherlands (TIN), investigates the possibilities of implementing instruments developed in the United States, especially SafeStat (see below), to monitor the effects of the activities carried out by the Transport and Water Management Inspectorate, (in Dutch "Inspectie Verkeer en Waterstaat (IVW)"), and Transport Inspectorate Netherlands (TIN, "Divisie Vervoer"), to increase road traffic safety. SafeStat is a set of rules, integrated in a software tool, which prioritizes U.S. motor carriers for safety inspections. Other instruments have been developed in the US for selecting vehicles for roadside inspections and for evaluating the effectiveness of road transport safety policy. The Dutch Ministry of Transport would like to develop a similar instrument for prioritizing carriers for inspection in the Netherlands, but also for assessing the effectiveness of the inspection activities (roadside inspections and on-site compliance reviews) carried out by TIN. The report contains a comparison of road safety aspects in the United States and The Netherlands and a description of the American tools and proposals for the development of similar tools in The Netherlands.
