Réduire les inégalités de risque d’accident dans les quartiers défavorisés : le succès d’une expérimentation britannique


  • Sylvanie Godillon


In response to socio-spatial inequalities related to the road risk, a trial was leaded from 2002 to 2008 in the United Kingdom. The Neighbourhood Road Safety Initiative is a specific financial support in order to reduce the number of accidents in deprived neighbourhoods. Road safety improvement has been significant. The aim of this article was to detect mechanisms lead to success. The used method was an investigation of technical documents (urban renovation, road safety, mobility) and interviews. Results showed that the pedagogic and pragmatic features of the Neighbourhood Road Safety Initiative explained success. In fact, the initiative encouraged changes in terms of selecting and implementing road safety actions. Code JEL : I38
