  • DECLARACIÓN SOBRE DATOS MÁS SEGUROS PARA MEJORES RESULTADOS EN SEGURIDAD VIAL BUENOS AIRES
    datos de exposición tales como la población el número de veh km conducido por tipo de usuarios de la vía etc Se recomienda que los países también recolecten datos sobre los costos de los siniestros de tránsito y la calidad de las políticas y su implementación Se alienta a todos los países de América Latina y el Caribe a mejorar los sistemas de datos unirse al OISEVI y contribuir con IRTAD LAC En este sentido el modelo desarrollado para América Latina y el Caribe con una red regional y una base de datos especial y diseñada para ser una herramienta de aprendizaje puede ser replicado de manera útil en otras regiones del mundo Los datos de seguridad deben ser agregados a nivel nacional y analizados y publicados por una agencia nacional líder La agencia debe ser capaz de monitorear el desempeño de la seguridad vial sobre la base de indicadores clave y proporcionar evaluaciones objetivas del progreso y el impacto de las intervenciones de los responsables de diseñar e implementar la estrategia de seguridad vial En varios países un observatorio de seguridad vial bajo los auspicios de una agencia de seguridad vial líder o un ministerio específico está a cargo de la recolección y análisis de datos Este modelo ha demostrado ser un buen marco institucional para elevar el perfil de la seguridad vial y fomentar las acciones de política pero en el seguimiento del desempeño mantener la objetividad es fundamental para llegar a conclusiones creíbles El monitoreo regular y el análisis de los factores clave de riesgo de la seguridad vial por ejemplo la frecuencia con la que conductores exceden los límites de velocidad el porcentaje de conductores y pasajeros que no llevan el cinturón de seguridad las tasas de alcoholemia las tasas de uso de casco etc deben llevarse a cabo Los resultados del seguimiento deben estar a disposición del público durante intervalos regulares y utilizarse si corresponde para adaptar las estrategias de seguridad vial en el lugar A un nivel más amplio la relación entre el rendimiento de la seguridad vial y el desarrollo económico debe ser entendida tanto sobre el largo como en el corto plazo en relación con el ciclo económico Son varios los factores económicos que pueden influir sobre la seguridad vial incluyendo la tasa de desempleo y el nivel de consumo y producción Estos factores pueden influir tanto en el volumen de tráfico nivel y composición como en el comportamiento de los usuarios Además a lo largo del ciclo económico hay evidencia de una relación entre el crecimiento económico y la seguridad vial Generalmente cuando la disminución del crecimiento económico y el desempleo aumentan menos personas mueren en las carreteras Sin embargo los mecanismos están comprendidos de manera imperfecta y se necesita más investigación sobre las relaciones de causalidad La comunidad internacional debe trabajar hacia la armonización de los datos incluyendo definiciones comunes de los principales indicadores La mayoría de los países han adoptado la definición de 30 días para determinar una fatalidad
