Evaluation is an essential part of the design and delivery of road safety schemes. It helps to identify and demonstrate whether the intervention has had an intended effect; and it can help provide evidence to funders and policymakers about the effects of the intervention.
It not only allows the examination of the efficacy of interventions but also how it can be improved to better meet the objectives, and it can demonstrate whether there are any additional benefits to the intervention as well as ensures that the intervention does not do any harm or have unexpected negative consequences. Additionally, it is possible to show value of money in order to justify continuation of the scheme.
