WDM® attend the Road Safety Markings Association (RSMA) Event
WDM® will be showing delegates at the Road Safety Markings Association annual meeting in Derby how the retro-reflectivity of road markings can be measured across a full carriageway width in a single Scanner survey. A WDM® Scanner machine already simultaneously takes more than 40 different measurements of road condition, including cracking and potholes (surface irregularity index) Now a Scanner survey can deliver even more value by measuring retro-reflectivity and daytime contrast of road markings. Plus, the wide measurement range allows for the simultaneous measuring of offside, nearside and in-lane markings, unlike previous generation devices – in one pass! Ultra-bright...

EU road safety – slight gains
A slow improvement is being seen on Europe’s roads in terms of safety. In 2017, 25,250 people were killed in road crashes in the EU. This represents a 2% reduction from the road death rate for the EU in 2016. However there is concern that progress with road safety is too slow as the road death rate for the EU has fallen by only 3% in the last four years. Of the 32 countries monitored by the PIN Programme, 22 reduced road deaths in 2017 . The best results were achieved by Estonia with a 32% decrease, Luxembourg with 22%, Norway with 21% and Slovenia with 20%. But road deaths increased...

WDM® systems link road condition data with accidents, structures, customer services, inventory, road maintenance and other data.
