Star Rating for Schools given a boost
Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) has been launched to delegates and stakeholders gathered in Sweden for the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety .
Developed by iRAP with the support of FedEx as founding sponsor and the FIA Foundation as major donor, the SR4S application which won a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2018 supports quick interventions that save lives and prevent serious injuries by measuring, managing and communicating the risk children are exposed to on a journey to school.
The app uses the already proven iRAP Star Rating methodology to assess the road features and traffic conditions known to affect safety. It provides an easy to use, systematic way of measuring the safety of a child’s journey to school from 1 to 5 stars (5 being the safest) and provides an evidence base from which recommendations to improve road safety can be made.
