Interdisciplinary Center for Road Safety (ICRS) was established in 2011 as a consultancy and training provider that promotes road safety in light of the 2011-2020 Decade of Action for Road Safety. ICRS activities focus on promoting safer roads and responsible driving culture with the objective of saving lives, reducing injuries and vulnerability caused as a consequence of traffic accidents.
Creating a safe driving culture
To create awareness, improve knowledge and driving skills of road users and road planners by using state-of- the-art, as well as, innovative approaches and technology to road safety with the aim of saving lives.
ICRS offers training, educational programs and consultancy services to companies and corporations, non- governmental organizations and diplomatic corps, schools, governmental institutions and law enforcement agencies, communities and individuals.
Think Global Act Local - while there are universal principles of car control and safety measures, every country has some unique road rules, vehicles, road conditions, licensing standards, weather conditions and local culture which create a different driving experience and require different driving behavior. We, at ICRS, take all these variables under consideration, tailoring and sensitizing our training to the local norms and practice that would be relevant and applicable by our participants.
