The measure to be taken and efforts to be made, to ensure traffic safety in Strategy Paper to achieve the aims and objectives and reduce the deaths and serious injuries caused by traffic accidents by 50% by 2030, were organized under 9 subgroups and the performance and application of interventions and measures were stipulated in each group.
A. Priority Fields:
3 main fields of intervention evaluated to be the main factor in the happening of traffic accidents and effective in loss of lives when compared with others were identified in this field:
B. Fields to Intervene as part of the Safe System Approach:
The interventions and measures to be taken in this fields were determined based on the analysis of the accidents happening in Turkey with the methods determined in scientific efforts and the interventions and measures were reviewed under 6 subheadings:
It is necessary to monitor the measurable and sustainable objectives, institutional and sectoral performance identified under these subheadings to measure the development in traffic safety. Amongst the essential conditions of the step-by-step applicability of the Strategy Paper, the establishment of a serious, planned, and orderly monitoring mechanism was considered to be important.
With this design, it is important that the Coordination Board established with the 2011-2020 Road Traffic Safety Strategy and Action Plan published with the Notice No. 2012/16 continues its duty under the same conditions and does its duties actively in terms of the notification, monitoring, reporting, and evaluation of activities by the institutions and organizations being a traffic safety stakeholder as part of the strategy paper and action plans.
The periodical monitoring mechanism has been set forth in terms of measuring the performance of traffic safety and it is accepted as an important monitoring mechanism that the stakeholder institutions report their activities regularly and inform the Coordination Board to monitor and evaluate the institutional and sectoral development in the Strategy Paper and related Action Plans. In this context;
1. Annual Evaluation and Monitoring Mechanism:
Annual evaluation meetings will be held to realize the annual objectives as part of the objectives in Target Cards specified in Action Plans based on the Strategy Paper. It is aimed at discussing with and disseminating the annual evaluation report to all stakeholders in the evaluation meeting to be held at the start of the following calendar year and monitoring the achievement status of stakeholder institutions in cooperation and coordination.
2. Interim Evaluations:
The interim objectives will be monitored by gathering the Coordination Board once every 6 months to review the activities of the past 6 months and evaluating the activities to be conducted in the following 6 months. Therefore, it is extremely important not to have any trouble in this monitoring mechanism to be conducted under the coordinatorship of the Ministry of Interior in terms of this Strategy Paper to achieve its objectives.
3. Trimester Evaluations:
It is set forth to communicate the reporting to cover the 3-months periods between 6-months meetings to the Coordination Board and keep the objectives and activities active with the trimester evaluations. The DGS Traffic Presidency , acting as the secretariat on behalf of the Coordination Board, will transform the “Three-Months Trimester Evaluation Reports” submitted by the stakeholder institutions into one report and submit for the information of all relevant stakeholders by reporting as part of the Action Plans and Strategy Paper.
