posted in: News

In the Dominican Republic has remained for a long time a short-range view on road safety. The lack of strategic objectives based on the continuity of their goals and clear vision have forced to develop operational days tending to decrease the siniestralidades for various reasons, including circulation as complementary action in the main roads of the country. The national emergency Commission, a multisectoral State body created by law in our country, with the assistance of volunteers is responsible for developing temporary jobs at least two times a year, at Easter and during the Christmas holidays, seasons recorded highest number of deaths because of the great mobility by commercial activities. However, other institutions announce independent interventions, their own circumstantial operating of road safety, which shows some weakness in the management of public policies. The truth is that already in Dominican Republic the need arises to implement objectives strategic accompanied by a set of specific actions under a conceptual framework previously defined and characterized by a model of monitoring and control of the vision, as well as a pattern of accidents that allows us to make good decision making. The latter is only possible with the establishment of an Observatory of data and a constant and correct evaluation and data analysis. To not understand that factors of risks as a whole must be addressed and fully confronted with sustainability weaknesses will manifest themselves in the plan selected.

User, vehicle and road are these essential factors to be observed over a period determined, with the implementation of key actions which will act under strategic areas specific you may get the desired results in the established indicators. Are defined as strategic areas to which we would have to put special attention, as education and driver training, process of obtaining the license, driver awareness road safety and vehicles, control and management of traffic and infrastructure, care for victims and their families, practice good governance and approval of the methodology of research developments and indicators. Various international agencies acting on these aspects. For example, the World Health Organization in what has to do with the victims and their environment; the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank in regard to the road network by promoting economic games to strengthen the signages and the audits of road; the Iberoamerican General Secretariat in the education, training and promotion of road safety, as well as the creation of observatories of data. United Nations promotes the implementation of comprehensive security road, both regional and national plans, but from the political point of view as well as other agencies. All these agencies advocate for achievable goals that they do not put at risk the reliability of plans and strategic programmes. Original author and source of the article.
