The Road Traffic Safety Agency has completed the project “Benchmarking of road safety on a local level and establishing system of road safety in local self-governments”. The project entirely completed within the RTSA. It represents “the pilot project” of introducing benchmarking and establishing the system of road safety in eleven local self-governments: Krusevac, Kralevo, Sremska Mitrovica, Sabac, Zrenjanin, Valjevo, Loznica, Kovin, Ub, Cacak and Bogatic. During the Project, a methodology for direct work with the local self-governments has been established. While establishing the methodology, the idea has been for it to become the basis for monitoring and evaluation of work of all local self-governments in the field of road safety, but also to provide transfer of knowledge and examples of best practice from better self-governments to the worse ones.
The project has primarily provided a detailed insight in functioning of the system in all local self-governments involved in the project. The noticed shortcomings, identified problems, weaknesses, potential, as well as the success of certain local self-governments are significant results of the project, important for further work of each municipality or town in the Republic of Serbia. Besides that, the project gives the guidelines for further work in the field of benchmarking of road safety on a local level.
The most important step further compared to the current way of conducting benchmarking is direct participation of representatives of the Agency in the work of the council, as well as direct data collection from the competent institutions of road safety (traffic police, local road manager, meeting with the representatives of the educational institutions, etc.) on a local level.
The project has been completed through three phases and contains six chapters and two appendixes:
Chapter 1 contains introduction to the pilot project, description of benchmarking as a tool in road safety;
Chapter 2 contains the methodology of work on the project concept of benchmarking based on the five pillars of road safety and mathematical model of benchmarking applied in the territories of local self-governments;
Chapter 3 contains the definition and description of all safety performance indicators divided into five pillars of road safety;
Chapter 4 contains the results of benchmarking (by pillars of road safety and for each local self-governments individually);
Chapter 5 contains the results of mutual activities of the professional team of the Road Traffic Safety Agency and local self-governments involved in the project, before all local councils;
Chapter 6 contains the most important results summed up and the recapitulation of the activities in the project;
Appendix 1 contains the analysis of road safety state in local self-governments involved in the project;
Appendix 2 contains detailed results of benchmarking by indicators not shown in the basic text of the project.
The pilot project “BENCHMARKING OF ROAD SAFETY ON A LOCAL LEVEL AND ESTABLISHING SYSTEM OF ROAD SAFETY IN LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENTS” is available for download by clicking the picture bellow.
The project “Measuring safety performance indicators in traffic for the year 2015“ is completed. The project involved two researches of indicators: spring-summer and fall research, and for every analyzed safety performance indicator aggregation of results of measures conducted during the spring-summer and fall research of 2015 was done, so that the unified (annual) values of safety performance indicators for the Republic of Serbia for 2015 was done.
In 2015, monitoring the values of already researched indicators was continued, and the monitoring of indicators related to care of injured in road accidents began. The project determined the values of indicators related to:
· Seatbelt use
· Use of child protection systems
· Use of safety helmets
· Speed of vehicles
· Driving under the influence of alcohol
· Using mobile phones while driving
· Use of daytime running lights, and
· Treatment and care of injured in road accidents.
Unified (annual) values of safety performance indicators for years 2013, 2014 and 2015
Based on the results of the project a brochure “Safety Performance Indicators in the Republic of Serbia for the year 2015” was prepared containing the results of the newest, fall research of indicators, as well as the unified – annual values of safety performance indicators in the Republic of Serbia for the year 2015, and the it is available for download here.
The established values of safety performance indicators will also be available in the WEB GIS application Database of safety performance indicators in the Republic of Serbia, at the web address http://serbia.gdi.net/azbs/.
The Road Traffic Safety Agency pursuant to Article 9, paragraph 2, item 1, as well as pursuant to Article 15, paragraph 1 of the Law on Road Traffic Safety (Official Gazette RS Nos. 41/09, 53/10, 101/11) is obliged to develop and use the Unique road safety database. Having in mind that within development of information system of the Road Traffic Safety Agency it is planned that the data collected by the Agency in the Unified database significant for traffic safety become available for users outside the Agency, a project for purchasing WEB GIS Application was completed.
The application was developed as an Internet application, which means it is accessed via internet browsers on a computer. The data distributed from the Application represent maps of values of chosen traffic safety indicators, as well as tables that can be exported directly from the Application to .xls or .pdf format. The delivered maps generated by the application show different traffic safety indicators on municipality and police department levels, and presenting locations of road accidents (using coordinates) and black spots in street and road network in the Republic of Serbia is planned.
The Application consists of two basic parts: attributive and graphical. The attributive part of application provides doing analysis and filtering the data on road accidents and persons involved in road accidents. Adjusting the distribution set of data on road accidents and persons involved in road accidents is possible using data filter and according to: police department, municipality, year, month, day, hour, accident type, vehicle category, age of participant, while with person analysis along with the mentioned, it is possible to do analysis according to gender and road user type. The attributive part of the application provides a simultaneous multiple filter analysis, thus having a possibility to intercross diverse attributes without using additional software tools and without special knowledge of some of the tools for data processing. All the analyses from the attributive part of application can be seen in the XSL format opened by application Microsoft Excel for the needs of further data processing, or in PDF format. Before data delivery, it is possible to look over the data directly through the application itself. If during the attributive analysis an analysis according to police departments or municipalities is chosen, such an analysis of absolute indicators can be shown on a map.
The graphical part of the application consists of in advance predefined maps with presented road safety risks in municipalities and police departments, as well as values of safety performance indicators and marks of attitudes of traffic participants on the level of police departments. The graphical part of the application is continuously being enriched with new maps based on conducted researches usually aimed at specific categories of traffic participants. All the maps of indicators are presented in a way that the values of indicators are divided into five classes of value and shown in different colors with an aim of quick recognizing particularly risky territorial units. The maps can be directly changed from PDF format to A4 or A3 paper format, and the maps can be adjusted to personal needs through the application itself using drawing tools (adding markers, personal text, etc.). Using the tools for identification is possible to obtain specific data on risk values, indicators or marks of attitudes by selecting a certain municipality or police department, depending on the chosen level of identification. Each map shown contains a certain set of data which could be recognized by identification the map itself. Along with identification, it is possible to search data that are the part of a certain map, in order to filter the results in graphical sense.
Special significance of the attributive analysis lies in possibility that each local self-government gets a number of important analyses for initiating activities with the aim of increasing traffic safety. Using the application, the representatives of local self-governments will find future work on improving traffic safety much easier. Along with the municipalities, each police department can recognize the key problems towards which the work of police officers should be directed.

The Road Traffic Safety Agency has completed a project “Quality improvement of data collecting and entry into road accidents’ database”. Improving the quality of collecting data on road accidents is done according to the CADaS recommendations of the European Commission. CADaS is the abbreviated form of Common Accident Data Set, and the European Commission recommends all the countries members of the European Union to accept the proposed structure of obligatory data on road accidents.
The project “Quality improvement of data collecting and entry into road accidents’ database” by police officers of traffic police, has a goal to to train professional staff for collecting data on road accidents in accordance with CADaS recommendations of the European Commission, with an aim of improving the quality of database on road accidents, which represents one of the most significant elements for analysis, monitoring and improving the traffic safety system.
Training of 420 traffic police officers working on road accident investigations was included in the project. The training was six months long and it was completed in June 2015.
Preparation of Instructions for collecting data preceded the training. The orderer of the project was The Road Traffic Safety Agency working in cooperation with the Traffic Police Department on implementing CADaS in Serbia.
The Republic of Serbia should align with the countries of the European Union, which collect data on road accidents in the same way. Completing the project should provide comparability with other countries, better analyses of processes of road accident occurrence and a more quality database adjusted to the European Union. Adapting of the Republic of Serbia to the CADaS requirements of the European Commission is a kind of praise for the country itself in the process of EU integration.
The Academy of Criminalistic and Police Studies completed the project “Method of Benchmarking Traffic Safety Institutions in Local Self-Governments in the Republic of Serbia, Strategic Importance and Potential” for the needs of the Road Traffic Safety Agency. Benchmarking is a process of determining performances by applying indicators of success, which are comparable between different wholes. Benchmarking studies give an opportunity to creators of policies to identify the places in organization where improvements are possible, provide comparison of organizations of similar structure and help monitoring performances of those organizations during a period of time.
Pursuant to the Article 21, paragraph 2 of the Law on Road Traffic Safety, the Road Traffic Safety Agency is, among other things, in charge of cooperation with regional and local traffic safety bodies, while the responsibility of the Road Traffic Safety Agency in terms on analysis, monitoring and improvement of road traffic safety, and was also recognized. The Agency is an institution responsible for cooperation with regional and local traffic safety bodies in the Republic of Serbia, and represents a connection between the traffic safety institutions on the republic level and on the local level.
Historical factors, nation’s culture, organization system and economic status, are only some of the factors that make one country’s traffic a unique system, and those factors should be perceived, which represents the basic goal of benchmarking application idea. Current application of benchmarking in the field of traffic safety was based only on considering direct and indirect indicators of traffic safety, forming classes and groups based on relevant and professionally recognized indicators.
By establishing the methodology for benchmarking traffic safety institutions in local self-governments in the Republic of Serbia, the first step was made towards evaluating institutional capacities in the field of traffic safety. This way a base was formed for perceiving the organization, efficiency and efficacy of the work of traffic safety institutions in local self-governments. The established method is realized within a “pilot” research involving 12 local self-governments - municipalities. During the realization of this “pilot” research, key problems were noticed in the work of these bodies, however a foundation for improving methods of realization was set based on gained experience.
The following problems were identified in applying the regulations in local self-governments:
-The executive branch of the local self-government has a legal possibility to decide if it will form the Road Traffic Safety Coordination Body, and with an aim of adjusting the work of traffic safety within the scope of the local self-government’s unit. Due to having an option in 2010, only 41 Road Traffic Safety Coordination Bodies were formed, which makes 28% of total number of local self-governments in the Republic of Serbia.
-The conditions for quality spending of funds set aside for improving road safety, must be related to the Program of using funds, which directly depends on professionalism, motivation and competence of the members of the Coordination Body.
-Research shows that there were cases in practice of adopting the Program which is not in compliance with requirements regulated by the Law on Road Traffic Safety, or cases that the funds were set aside for a purpose not related to traffic safety (even for such purposes which cannot be connected with traffic safety at all). Also, it was recognized that there is no unanimous approach in choice of activities for improving traffic safety, their classification by purpose defined by the Law.
Research was conducted on the attitudes of the members of the Road Traffic Safety Coordination Body and the following results were noticed:
-Crucial problems in the work of the Coordination Body are related to the insufficient commitment and lack of professional staff, but also lack of cooperation with the Agency, as well as limited funds.
-Among the most significant activities which are recognized as activities to be realized in local self-governments for improving traffic education and upbringing, are teaching children, training for teachers but also introducing a school subject Traffic education and upbringing.
-Among the most frequently recognized preemptive promotional activities to be launched, a need for more media activity was recognized, a need for campaigns for all traffic participants, as well as a need for more improved work with children and parents.
Based on the total mark of local self-governments, Municipality of Topola is singled out with 68% out of maximum values of all indicators and mark 4. After Topola, the best score among the municipalities involved in the research had Municipality of Kraljevo (64%).
THE INFORMATIONAL BROCHURE OF THE PROJECT IS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD
The Road Traffic Safety Agency has completed a project about analysis of attitudes of traffic participants called “Research of Attitudes of Traffic Participants on Risks in Traffic in Serbia, Defining of Methodology, Key Problems and Course of Action”. The project of analysis of attitudes of traffic participants has been conducted by the Agency for the first time, therefore a part of the project describes methodology for future research of attitudes about dangers and risks in road traffic.
The key contribution of the project is the methodology for future research, based on defining periods of repeating researches, size of necessary sample, way of collecting data etc. The ground for defining the methodology is the European project SARTRE (abbreviated from “Social Attitudes to Road Traffic Risk in Europe”) aimed at researching social attitudes towards risks in road traffic in Europe.
Surveys were being conducted through cooperation with technical inspection centers, via online surveys available on web pages of municipalities in Serbia or social networks, or filled out at certain events. The survey is aimed at three target groups: drivers of cars, motorcyclists and pedal cyclists.
THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CONCLUSIONS OF THE PROJECT
Less than one fifth of traffic participants who underwent the survey stated that the government was not interested in traffic safety problem.
The behavior that mostly causes road accidents is driving under the influence of alcohol, the participants believe.
Risky behavior indicated by drivers as usually done, is vehicle tracking at improper distance, passing on the yellow light and the use of mobile phone while driving.
The most of the participants (over 50%) believe that alcohol blocker that prevents all drivers and recidivists to start the vehicle under the influence of alcohol would be useful, as well as the system that detects fatigue and warns the driver to stop driving in such circumstances.
ATTITUDES RELATED TO SPEEDING
The biggest percentage (47%) does not agree that exceeding the speed limit in urban areas by 20 km/h increases the risk of involvement in road accidents with other traffic participants.
When it comes to individual motives for exceeding the speed limit by 20 km/h, one third of the asked drivers stated that it makes their ride better adapted to other drivers and it enables them to arrive faster to their destination.
Intention to exceed the speed limit by 20 km/h in urban areas reported 7.3% of drivers in the Republic of Serbia.
One fourth of car drivers, a little less than half of motorcyclists and about four fifths of pedestrians and pedal cyclists, agree with the statement that sanctioning of speeding should be more severe.
Male drivers have a greater intention to exceed the speed limit compared to women. The shorter the driving experience, the greater is the driver’s intention speed.
ATTITUDES RELATED TO DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL
More than half of the drivers stated that in the month before they had not driven a vehicle, and at the same time they had consumed at least small amount of alcohol. In the territory of the Republic of Serbia 4.3 % of drivers stated that they had often, very often and always operated a vehicle in the month before whilst consuming at least a small amount of alcohol.
About one fifth of motorcyclists stated they had operated the motorcycle when consumed at least a small amount of alcohol.
Male drivers reported a more frequent driving under the influence of alcohol than female drivers.
More than half of car drivers and motorcyclists agree with a statement that the sanctioning for driving under the influence of alcohol should be more severe.
Almost four fifths of car drivers and motorcyclists believe that operating under the influence of alcohol increases the possibility for road accident occurrence. 87% of motorcyclists think alcohol is often, very often and always, the cause for road accidents.
ATTITUDES ON USING PROTECTION SYSTEMS
About one fourth of drivers agreed with the statement that if they drive carefully, protection systems are not necessary. In addition, about three quarters of drivers believe that in the most of the accidents safety belts reduce the possibilities for driver’s or passenger’s serious injuries.
Half of the drivers stated that they feel less comfortable when they do not use the seat belt. When it comes to perception of close friends’ driving, most of the drivers believe that the majority of them use seat belts.
One fifth of motorcyclists think that if they operate the motorcycle carefully, it is not necessary to wear a helmet. About one fifth of motorcyclists said that they wear a helmet only because the law prescribes it.
ATTITUDES OF PEDESTRIANS
68% of pedestrians claim they never or rarely cross the street when the red light for pedestrians is on, and 13% said that they never cross the street outside the pedestrian crossing.
More than four fifths of pedestrians (87%) reported they never or rarely wear reflecting clothes.
Young pedestrians between the age of 17 and 24 cross the street when the red light is on more frequently than the age group 35-44.
ATTITUDES OF CYCLISTS
13% of cyclists reported they cross the street when the red light is on more than occasionally, and 38% that thy wear reflecting clothes.
About one third of cyclists stated that they often and more often wear the helmet for cyclists, and about three quarters of cyclists said that they use lights during the ride the dark often and more often.
The cyclists reported that most frequently they are annoyed by car drivers and motorcyclists.
PRESENTING THE RESULTS OF THE RESEARCH
The results of the research are presented on maps of police departments and regions in the Republic of Serbia. The values of the researched attitudes (so called “scores”) are given parallel with the results of risks of casualties in traffic. The analyses of the attitudes will be of crucial help to the Agency when choosing the preemptive actions (campaigns and education) in the next period with the aim of changing the negative attitudes of traffic participants.
The Road Traffic Safety Agency began monitoring the performances of safety performance indicators and completed the project “Monitoring traffic safety indicators in Serbia and their importance for strategic traffic safety management”. Completion of this project was milestone in the field of monitoring and analysis of traffic safety state in the Republic of Serbia, in a way that means monitoring traffic safety not only based on the final outcomes (numbers and consequences of road accidents), but also based on values of the researched indicators.
In the year 2014 measuring, monitoring and analysis of performances of safety performance indicators, was continued based on the existing methodology defined in the year 2013. In this respect, the project “Research of Indicators of Traffic Safety Performances in the Republic of Serbia for the year 2014” was launched. Research of indicators was conducted in the territory of all 27 police departments in the Republic of Serbia, where the values of indicators were established, and related to:
1. Use of safety belts for drivers and passengers
2. use of car seats for children under the age of 3 in cars, as indicators related to safe transport of children of 4 to 12 years of age
3. Use of protective helmets for motorized two-wheeler riders and passengers
4. Use of daytime lights by drivers of motor vehicles
5. Speed and exceeding the speed limit by drivers
6. Driving under the influence of alcohol
Along with the mentioned indicators, the project “Research of Indicators of Traffic Safety Performances in the Republic of Serbia for the year 2014” methodology was defined and measuring of the new indicator’s value was done, and related to:
7. Improper use if mobile phones by drivers.
According to the defined methodology, the values were established for each of 27 police department territories, and for:
*on the motorway (for police departments with motorways in their territory)
Based on the researched indicators by police departments, the final value of indicators for the Republic of Serbia for the year 2014 was established. Establishing the value of indicators is important for recognizing responsibilities and obligations of institutions and organizations in charge of improving the values of monitored indicators and undertaking measures relating to specific indicators. The positive changes of values of indicators from the aspect of traffic safety will bring to reducing the number and consequences of road accidents.
VALUES OF CHOSEN INDICATORS FOR THE TERRITORY OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
Value of indicator Percentage of daytime running lights by drivers of cars and delivery trucks up to 3.5 t in the Republic of Serbia in 2014 is 95.8%.
Values of safety performance indicators related to the protection systems
Value of indicator Usage of seat belts on front seats in cars and and delivery trucks up to 3.5 t is 70.3%.
Value of indicator Usage of seat belts on rear seats in cars and and delivery trucks up to 3.5 t is 4.0%.
Value of indicator Usage of protection systems for children up to 3 years old is 35.9%.
Value of indicator Usage of protection systems for children from 4 to 12 years old is 9.2%.
Value of indicator Usage of protection helmets for moped riders is 72.4% and indicator Usage of protection helmets for passengers on mopeds is 62.9%.
Value of indicator Usage of protection helmets for motorcycle riders is 91.5% and indicator Usage of protection helmets for passengers on motorcycles is 85.0%.
Values of safety performance indicators related to speed
Percentage of speeding inside settlement 56.3%.
Percentage of speeding for at least 10 km/h inside settlement 22.3%.
The Road Traffic Safety Agency was the orderer of the project “Monitoring of the basic indicators of road accidents in Serbia according to the CADaS recommendations of the European Commission”. Completion of this project practically means forming the grounds for improving traffic safety in Serbia. Namely, one of the activities of the Agency defined by the Law on Traffic Safety is development of the Unique road safety database, as an important element for precise definition of the current state, identifying problems and planning future measures in traffic safety.
The project has been realized by the research team of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering in Belgrade, the project manager has been assistant professor PhD Dalibor Pesic, and the representatives of the Road Traffic Safety Agency and the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia have been professional consultants in launching the project.
A detailed comparison between the recommended CADaS set of data and national road accidents database was carried out. With regards to the noticed differences as well as the best European practice, a proposal of the basic set of data necessary to collect in Serbia, was defined in accordance with the recommendations of the European Commission. The set of data is made of variables organized in four groups:
1. Accident Information
2. Road Information
3. Traffic Unit Information
4. Person Information
Some of the news predicted relates to more precise defining the place of road accident occurrence, recording the road signs at the location of accident occurrence, recording the data on the location where an accident occurred, bridge, tunnel, construction zone, etc. In addition, it is proposed to record data on the Type of road accident by choosing suitable graphic display, as well as data on Maneuver of participants immediately before road accident. The new set of data includes recording of data on using systems of passive protection, psychophysical state of drivers immediately before the accident, data on purpose of travel, etc.
Taking into account the British Model of Contributory Factors it is proposed to record the factors that brought to road accident occurrence. Namely, according to the project, contributory factors are all those factors that brought to road accident occurrence, and those chosen by a police officer based on ”facts” determined during the investigation, after the investigation and based on statements of witnesses and road accident participants.
One of the results of the project is “Manual for monitoring basic indicators of road accidents in Serbia, according to the CADaS recommendations of the European Commission” made for members of investigation teams who collect data on the scene of the road accidents. The project also proposed an RA form whose aim is to simplify collection of data by police officer during investigation.
The new model of monitoring characteristics of road accidents was proposed in order to improve the range and quality of analyses that can be conducted, as well as to achieve comparability and harmonization of data on road accident on the European level.
Development of quality database is one of the most important elements for successful functioning of road safety system. High quality and reliability of data represents the grounds for choosing long-term measures and activities that can contribute to reducing negative consequences of road accidents. This approach provides evaluating efficacy of realized measures, which were applied.
In the period between February and June 2014, the Agency has realized the project for purchasing GIS (geographic information system). The software was purchased in the process of public procurement, in terms with the working program of the Agency. The software is a product of American company ESRI, leader in GIS software world market. Program package ArcGIS for Desktop Standard (formerly ArcEditor).
Within the project available database on road accidents was entered, as well as other road safety indicators, such as safety performance indicators, road casualty risk in municipalities in Serbia, data on local road traffic safety coordination bodies, etc. This way a development of database on road safety has started using the GIS base platform completely. Development of the Agency’s GIS database presents the grounds for establishing a Unique road safety database.
The entered data on road accidents and consequences contain a geographic component, which is possible to relate to territories of municipalities, counties and police departments in Serbia. The Republic Geodetic Authority, national producer of geographic data, provides geographic data from the register of spatial units. At the same time, the Republic Geodetic Institute provided the Agency with ortho-photos of high resolution (10,20 and 40 cm) for the entire territory of Serbia, which can be used in future period for more detailed analyses of road accidents as well as other needs for working in the database. The importance of ortho-photos within the GIS base will particularly be emphasized after receiving data on position- coordinates of road accidents.
Since the Agency receives general data on road accidents and consequences from the Ministry of Interior- Traffic Police Department, on monthly basis, within the GIS base it is possible to show the changes in number of road accidents and their consequences in police departments. Showing of changes is achieved by creating “small” geobases, updated monthly. Thus, the state of road safety in police departments in Serbia is monitored in an updated, simple and clear way. Along with that, all the data on local road traffic safety bodies are updated in the GIS base, from basic information if a municipality formed the body or not, to information about the year of forming, president, contact, etc.
All the data analyzed and presented are in accordance with the Law on Personal Data Protection, that is in the data analyzing and processing, personal information and vehicle plate numbers of accidents participants are not used.
After establishing the national Unique road safety database, all of these, and many other data will be available to institutions and organizations in charge of road safety activities. Additionally, it is planned to establish a national base where all the subjects will collect and deliver data, each from their own scope of work, which will be available to all interested sides and citizens of Serbia, in accordance with the Law on Road Traffic Safety. Once the national Unified database is established and becomes sustainable, its further development and improvement will become a continuous process.
Reports on the current road traffic safety indicators from the Agency’s database.
The Road Traffic Safety Agency in cooperation with Automobile and motorcycle association of Serbia – Center for motorized vehicles, has realized a pilot project of risk mapping in the road IA2 “Ibarska magistrala” in the section from Belgrade (Zarkovo) to Cacak (Preljina) in the length of 131.1 km.
The risk mapping was done based on the number of road accidents and consequences in the three-year period between 2010 and 2012, according to the EuroRAP methodology (EuroRAP- European Road Assessment Programme) which analyzes the following:
· Number of road accidents with killed and seriously injured people
· Specific locations of road accidents
· Value of AADT (annual average daily traffic)
· Coordinating points of the beginning and the end of the road section
· Value of calculated risk
· Correction factor
Practically, it is an objective method of evaluating road safety, based on real unwanted events on the monitored road network and it presents a standard tool recognized in the Law on Road Traffic Safety.
During the realization of the project cooperation with the Traffic Police Department of the Ministry of Interior was achieved in terms determining specific locations of road accidents occurrence, as well as with the public enterprise “Roads of Serbia” in terms of determining the sections in that part of Ibarska magistrala, as well as using the data on AADT (annual average daily traffic)
Based on the received data sections of Ibarska magistrala with the highest risk are:
1. Zarkovo – beltway (Knezevac) – 5.4 km
2. Ljig – Dici 8.7 km
3. Zupanjac – Dudovica 6.4 km
4. Ugrinovci – Bucin Grob 10.8 km
In the following period, the Road Traffic Safety Agency will take part in completing the projects that have a goal to identify the highest risk sections and locations on the road network in Serbia, with the aim of undertaking measures and actions for eliminating problems and improving traffic safety on the territory of the whole state.
