THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VEHICLE SPEED AND SAFETY

0:58, 4 December 2015

Let us examine how the vehicle speed affects the number of accidents and the likelihood of death on the road, and focus on the interaction between vehicles and pedestrians as two “most opposite” traffic participants.     Speed ??and the probability of an accident Let’s consider the stopping distance. It can be calculated if you know the driver reaction time and the stopping distance of a vehicle after the brakes have been applied. The average reaction time is 1 second. If the speed increases, the distance travelled per 1 second also increases. The distance traveled from the moment when the brakes were applied to the moment when the car came to a full stop is proportional to the square of the speed of the car. When increasing the speed from 50 km/h to 80 km/h, the braking distance increases by 2 times. So it becomes harder to avoid hitting. The fact that wet conditions increase the stopping distance by 25% should also be taken into account. That is, the braking distance of a vehicle driving 60 km/h on a wet asphalt road is equal to the one of the vehicle driving 70 km/h on a dry road.     When driving 80 km/h the reaction distance is about 22 meters. And on a dry road the driver will need a minimum of 36 meters to stop the car completely. If a child runs out into the road at a distance of 36 meters from the car, it will almost certainly die if the initial speed of the vehicle will be 70 km/h, it will be injured at a speed of 60 km/h, and at 50...

Талатай С.В. "ИНТЕРВЬЮ ДЛЯ «ВЕЧЕРНИЙ БРЕСТ"
"Если посмотреть статистику аварийности на дорогах области за последние, скажем, пять лет, то она снижается. Но при этом остается достаточно высокой даже в масштабах страны. Я не могу мириться с тем, что мой родной город Брест входит в число самых аварийно опасных областных центров, и наша область в целом занимает лидирующие позиции по числу погибших на 100 тысяч населения: почти 9 человек. Для сравнения в целом по Беларуси — 8, среднеевропейский показатель — 6, а в скандинавских странах не более 3" читать дальше


Талатай С.В. "ОБРАЩЕНИЕ К УЧАСТНИКАМ ДОРОЖНОГО ДВИЖЕНИЯ БРЕСТЧИНЫ"
"Ситуация, которая сегодня складывается на дорогах нашей прекрасной области, требует принятия незамедлительных мер по ее «оздоровлению» не только сотрудниками Госавтоинспекции, а всеми жителями региона. Настало время поменять себя: свое поведение, свое мировоззрение и свое отношение к безопасности на дороге! Бытовало ранее мнение, а у многих соотечественников и сейчас складывается впечатление, что проблема травматизма на дорогах - это «головная боль» только Госавтоинспекции. Мы, сотрудники государственной автомобильной инспекции, ни в коем случае не уходим от ответственности, и понимаем, что это наша прямая обязанность" читать дальше

Концепции обеспечения безопасности дорожного движения

Ожидается, что новая программа аккумулирует в себе все самое лучшее из предыдущих форм и методов работы по профилактике дорожно-транспортного травматизма, а так же выйдет на более эффективный и качественный уровень взаимодействия и комплексного решения проблем. Взаимопонимание – в деле обеспечения безопасности дорожного движения должна соеденить усилия всех заинтересованных ведомств, организаций и, прежде всего, широкой общественности с целью формирования:
— устойчивого уровня законопослушания;
— изменения сознания участников дорожного движения в плане взаимного понимания, уважения и взаимопомощи;
— повышения водительской культуры;
и создания условий нетерпимости к агрессивному поведению и нарушителям ПДД.
