2 SUMMARY Road safety in Morocco The Objectives The Missions The main results of the studyThe recommandationsThe guidelines for other cities
3 Traffic Safety management in Morocco Inter-ministerial Committee of Road Safety (CISR): Head of the GovernmentPermanent Committee of Road Safety (CPSR) : Minister of Equipment and Transport ;Regional Committee of Road Safety (CRSR): Wali of the region
4 National Committee of Prevention from Traffic Accidents CommunicationRoad EducationStudies in Road Safety fieldPurchase Road safety equipments : Radars, weight equipment, …To develop the Role of Expert in Road Safety
6 THE OBJECTIVES of Casablanca Project Develop a new approach to resolve road safety problems in urban areas.Show to responsables at local level, using a case study, that road safety, mainly in urban area, needs a scientific approach;Give a material, from a study, to local authority to implement and to improve the safety of road users.
8 MAIN RESULTS OF THE STUDY Statistic analysis of accidents and victims within five yearsInstitutional and organizational analysis of traffic safety in Casablanca cityMapping of accidents and victims using data for five years :Development of a specific GIS which made it possible to locate geo-physical accidents : (4682 traffic accidents and 5896 victims were located exactly in the map);Developing maps of accidents and victims as needed, particularly by sub- areas in the city (Prefecture), year, categories of users. All variables of the database accidents can be used to meet specific needs;Identification of 46 BS of traffic accidents in Casablanca city : junctions (24) and straight sections (22).
9 MAIN RESULTS OF THE STUDY Deep study for 36 among very dangerous black spots and recording video of the behaviour of road users in 10 BS;Proposal of adequat solutions in terms of infrastructures and signals;Made recommendations of actions and measures relating to road safety in urban areas in general, and selected BS in particular in terms of :behaviour;infrastructure;Taffic and transportation ;Institutional and management of road safety sector in the city.

15 THE TYPOLOGY OF ACCUMULATION ZONES Areas examined can be grouped as follows:Main roads (boulevards) in the city;Streets with high pedestrian traffic mainly near (rail stations, shopping centres, hospitals, schools,. ..);Junctions;Highway interchanges;Exits from tunnels.

21 COMMUN DYSFUNCTIONSGeneral problems identified from the analysis of 30 BS are :Bad distribution of spaces between different kind of road users ;Roads, Streets and junctions are very wide ;Bicycles, moped and pedestrians are poorly considered in the Traffic management system ;Lack of signals: light, horizontal and vertical ;Lack of directional signs ;Parking of cars are poorly organized.
22 RECOMMENDATIONS AND LESSONS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND CONTROL IN URBAN AREAS
23 GENERAL RECOMMANDATIONS Introduce Road Safety Audit for all new projects;Need to develop GIS to understand traffic accidents, mainly in big cities;Need of technical guidelines concerning infrastructure management dedicated to : pedestrians, cyclists and motocyclistsEstablishing evaluation system to follow : Traffic accidents / field analysis / countermeasures;Definition of a new policy of Maintenance of equipment related to road safety.
24 RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO INFRASTRUCTURE Strengthen the safety of vulnerable road users by:- Make free sidewalks for pedestrians from: commercial activities, furnitures, plantation ..- Adopting new types of road safety equiment, particularly in residential areas in which there is a high concentration of pedestrians to reduce speed: Humps, elevated walkways,…-Introduction walk zones where the speed can not exceed 30 km/h, mainly near commercial areas, schools, and near public equipment in general;Establish a horizontal and vertical signals adapted to the safety of pedestrians ;Provide appropriate cycle paths beside the streets when it’s available;
25 RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO INFRASTRUCTURE Reduce the size of central crossroads in the main junctions with traffic signals, and create special lanes for "turn left"Introduce Smart Regulation Systems for traffic, especially in big cities ;
