noticia Prof. Fred Wegman (presenting report to Chilean Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, Paola Tapia), the course leader of the Delft Road Safety Course for Latin America, presented the results of a study in Argentina, Chile and Colombia early November 2017. The title of the study is: Benchmarking de la seguridad vial en América Latina.

The report describes and benchmarks road safety management and performance in ten Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay and Uruguay. The comparisons in this study allow identifying similarities and differences between countries’ road safety performance. It will be useful to policy makers in assessing weaknesses and strengths and designing effective road safety policies that make use of the experience in other countries.

The reports are available in Spanish and English (coming soon). The study can be downloaded for free from:
