  • Building and Construction

A safety-index-based road safety management system (RSMS) is a tool to help identify locations where safety intervention is needed. To date, various safety indices have been developed and utilized, but it is rare to consider the plan–do–check–act structure in an RSMS when studying the decision-making methodology. In this study, 36 indicators and a system of evaluation indicators were selected based on the major classifications of performance, effect, and improvement. Performance was categorized by safety system components and effect was reflected in the safety status, such as the number of injuries. The indicators were validated, and a classification methodology for safety groups was proposed through cluster analysis. It was found that there was no correlation between the indicators and the population, budget, or road area by administrative district. It was also found that no particular indicators had a significant impact on the overall result in the major category or the overall index. It was determined that the developed indicators were suitable for administrative district-specific safety monitoring. It is expected that these indicators will be continuously utilized and enhanced in the national evaluation of road traffic safety.
