The national road authorities (NRAs) of 13 European countries launched the BEXPRAC survey (Benchmarking of expenditures and practices of maintenance and operation) in an effort to benchmark the performance of their maintenance and operation (M&O) policies.
Les autorités routières nationales (ARN) de 13 pays européens ont lancé l’étude intitulée BEXPRAC (Benchmarking of expenditures and practices of maintenance and operation), à savoir l’évaluation comparative des dépenses et des pratiques d’entretien et d’exploitation, visant à évaluer la performance de leurs politiques en matière d’entretien et d’exploitation (E&E).
A review of the rules and practices concerning the safe distance between two vehicles on roads
was performed in 2007 and 2008 by members of CEDR’s TG Road Safety.
Member countries were asked to answer the following questions:
- Is there a regulation that governs the safe distance between vehicles in your country?
- If so, what are the rules (e.g. leave at least 2 seconds following distance to the vehicle in
- Have you experienced any problems enforcing these rules?
A review of experience of rumble strips was performed in 2007 by the members of CEDR’s TG Road Safety.
This paper sums up the answers received from CEDR’s member states. It focuses on longitudinal shoulder or median rumble strips only; it does not deal with the transversal rumble strips put on the pavement to get drivers to reduce their speed or as a warning, e.g. on big slopes or before a junction.

At the start of the CEDR RN2 work programme, it was identified that the noise mapping and action planning requirements of the EU Environmental Noise Directive (END) would form a significant component of the group's activities. Five subgroups were established to review and monitor activities associated with END noise mapping, END action planning, value for money in road traffic noise abatement, the EU noise calculation model (CNOSSOS-EU), and road noise research needs.
The remit of Traffic Incident Management (TIM) is to develop joint working practices between national road administrations, the police, and other incident responders to ensure the mutual achievement of objectives including the safety of both road users and responders, reduced congestion and economic costs, and improved travel reliability and efficiency
