ESRA (E-Survey of Road Users’ Attitudes) is a joint international initiative of research centres and road safety institutes across the world. In its first stage (ESRA1) the project has surveyed road users in 38 countries on 5 continents. In its current stage (ESRA2), 32 countries took part, and many more are expected to join in 2019.

The purpose of this network is to collect comparable data on the road safety situation, behaviour and culture, of road users across the world. The data collected and analyses lead to a large set of road safety indicators and provide scientific evidence for policy making at the national and international levels. 

Vias institute in Brussels (Belgium) initiated and coordinates the ESRA initiative, in cooperation with a core group of partner organisations from 11 countries.

The first edition of the ESRA survey (ESRA1) was launched in three waves during the period 2015-2017. The second edition (ESRA2), which is based on an improved survey questionnaire, will be launched in two waves between 2018 and 2019.

First results of the ESRA2_2018 survey, which cover 32 countries, will be published in a series of thematic reports in June 2019.

New countries can still join the second wave of the ESRA2 survey, which will be launched in autumn 2019. Please contact us if you are interested!
