Learn about Star Rating at Lunchtime seminar #5

After two months in a row where the stage was given to national programmes, we are dedicating our next Lunchtime seminar to RAP basics. On Tuesday, 8 March 2022, from 1 to 2 pm CET, we will focus on Star Rating. Register HERE.

Star Rating is used for road safety inspections, road safety impact assessments, and designs. Star Rating is an objective measure of the level of safety which is ‘built-in’ to the road through more than 50 road attributes that influence risk for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. It reflects the risk as it relates to an individual road user. 1-Star roads have the highest risk and 5-Star roads have the lowest risk.

The main features of the Star Rating approach will be presented by Morgan Fletcher, iRAP’s Latin America and Caribbean Operations Lead, and Suzy Charman from EuroRAP’s Management Committee. Register HERE, bring your lunch and find out what is happening in the EuroRAP programme.

This is the fifth of EuroRAP’s Lunchtime seminar series which provides information about the EuroRAP protocols through the ‘RAP basics’ online seminars, insight into iRAP research and innovation through our ‘Hot topic’ seminars, and inspiration for EuroRAP programmes through our ‘National schemes spotlight’ seminars. Along with a national schemes’ forum, these three seminar types are being presented in rotation giving us food for thought every month.

The virtual seminar series is aimed at all EuroRAP partners and other interested parties – from automobile clubs to road authorities, to researchers.
