Israel National Road Safety Authority-RSA - The Research Authority serves as the administrative and financial framework for research activities, scientific experiments and technical analyses carried out by Technion faculty, and TRDF staff. The missions of the Research & Development Division are: Location, collection, processing and distribution of information concerning local and international research funding Assistance in locating appropriate funding sources for Technion researchers R&D information management services and in-campus marketing Guidance and administrative services for Technion researchers in submitting research proposals to granting agencies and business entities Management of contractual engagements with granting agencies and business entitiesContractual and budgetary administration of research grants and other accounts ******Israel’s ambition to reduce the number of casualties (killed and injured people) of road crashes has recently been reconfirmed by the government through the approval of a national programme for road safety based on the so-called Sheinin-report (named after the chairman of the committee that prepared the report) (Sheinin, 2005). Further, The Knesset on the 12th of July 2006 approved the Governmental proposal to establish a strengthened National Road Safety Authority with significantly increased funding. On 29 November 2006, when addressing the 5th Or Yarok road safety conference the Prime-Minister Mr. Ehud Olmert publicly announced that Israel will work with a quantitative target for road safety and set a target of no more than 300 deaths per annum by the year 2015. Israel’s position in setting quantitative targets is not unique; many countries take a similar position. The European Union has a quantitative target of a 50% reduction in the number of fatalities over the ten years 2000 - 2010 (European Commission, 2001); other countries such as individual EU member states, Australia, USA and Canada have set similar targets, with the Russian Federation being a recent example (ECMT, 2006). At the highest level of government the wish has been expressed in some countries to reduce the death toll on the roads, by for example president Chirac in his so-called Bastille-speech on 14 July 2002 and president Putin when he addressed the Duma in 2005 and 2006. Developing countries are also starting to put road safety higher on their political agenda (Peden et al.,, 2004, Commission for Global Road Safety, 2006). Road safety has been improved dramatically in many highly-motorized countries. The number of fatalities in the Netherlands, for example, decreased from more than 3200 in 1972 to about 800 in 2005, a reduction of 75% in thirty years, despite motorisation increasing dramatically along with the number of kilometres travelled. Other countries are able to report similar successful developments. In Israel too, the number of fatalities decreased from 740 in the early 1970’s to less than 400 in the mid 1980’s, however it has since remained around 450 fatalities in the 2000’s. Despite these gains road trauma remains the single major cause of premature death in motorised societies.About 23,000 people died in Israel due to wars and terrorism since the birth of the State of Israel. About 29,000 died in a road crash in the same time period.Source: Central Bureau of Statistics IsraelA wealth of evidence is available from all over the world suggesting that at least a part of these improvements is caused by many successful road safety interventions (Johnston, 2006, Peden et al., 2004, Wegman et al., 2006). Modern cars are safer for their occupants than cars built twenty, or even only ten years ago, modern planning and design of roads and streets result in lower crash and injury risks. Legislation and enforcement of important safety behaviours, such as drinking and driving, using safety belts and speed management, have resulted in major steps forward in many countries during the last two to three decades, as have improvements in trauma care.These reductions in the number of road casualties and even more in the risks run on our roads have resulted not only in substantially less pain and suffering of those involved in road crashes but also in greatly reduced economic costs to society. In recent years several steps were taken to improve road safety in Israel, not least due to the activities of Or Yarok. The Sheinin report (Sheinin, 2005) did a sound analysis of road safety in Israel - see also Annex 3. - and the report contains several important recommendations. The Minister of Transport and Road Safety established a new National Road Safety Authority to consolidate road safety policies and to minimize the number of road traffic crashes and, as already noted, recently a law was accepted by the Knesset approving this reorganization and providing its financial base. These can be considered as important first steps towards intensified efforts to bring down the toll of road crashes in Israel; the next steps will be tofocus on the implementation of sound strategies and countermeasures. In preparing for the Sheinin report's implementation, the institutional changes of the Government and the road safety law, it became evident that acute problems exist with the road safety knowledge and research base in Israel. An International Experts' Advisory Committee (see Annex 1) was invited to study the current state of affairs on road safety research and academic education and to recommend ways to improve the situation. The invitation was sent out by two foundations: the Ran Naor Foundation for the Advancement of Road Safety Research and Yad Hanadiv (the Rothschild Foundation). Both foundations expressed their desire to contribute to further improvements in the field of road safety research. By implication it was stated that Israel could not solely rely on international research. National capacity is needed to identify local problems and needs and to assess the effects of interventions (ex-ante and ex-post). Developing research capacity nationally is a critical underpinning for effective evidencebased strategies, policies and practices and essential for Israel to achieve its stated goals of a reduced road toll. The members of this International Experts' Advisory Committee met in Israel in mid July 2006. A full week programme was prepared. For this visit extensive background information was collected and studied. Study of the background material and initial discussions of the committee resulted in a proposal on how to structure the final report and how to structure interviews and discussions with our colleagues from the academic world and the potential clients of research results. Due to unexpected events in Israel the visit had to be curtailed. However, initial thoughts of the committee were formed and preliminarily documented in an interim report. This initial and informal exchange of opinions and ideas supported the preparations for the committee’s second visit in late November 2006, to complete its tasks. In this full week programme, visits were paid to providers (universities) and clients of road safety research (see Annexes 4 and 5). At the end of this week the initial results were presented to both Foundations (see Annex 6).
