Road safety has improved significantly in Hungary between 2007 and 2013.The number of road fatalities had
dropped to levels seen 50 years earlier. In the past few years, however, it has started to increase again.
Unfortunately, the safety of cyclists is not in the focus of road safety related research activities in Hungary,
nevertheless, Road Safety Audits (RSA) are now used more often for cycling infrastructure projects.
A Road Safety Audit; one of the four pillars of road infrastructure safety management, focuses on the identification
of safety deficits in road infrastructure projects by performing an independent, detailed, systematic and technical
check. Auditing cycling infrastructure projects have recently become more common as a prerequisite for EUfunded
projects. As a result, a number of typical cycling safety issues have been collected from several bicycle
network development projects in which the authors were involved. The most frequent safety deficits are presented
in this paper.
