Description of the project:

The aim of the DAVID project is to save at least 58 lives during the next ten years. The project is divided in five parts:

  • Data Analysis
  • Respect of rules (especially Drink & Driving)
  • Life and Education
  • Engineering
  • Support for the victims and their families

In this first phase, the research group supported to the promoter of the initiative, associazione Lorenzo Guarnieri (www.lorenzogiarnieri.com), the Florence Municipality (www.comune.firenze.it) and McKinsey and Company (www.mckinsey.com), in defining a road safety plan 2011-2015 for the city of Florence. The implementation of this plan should allow to save at least 58 lives in Florence by reducing road accidents and their consequences during the next 10 years.

Currently the group is providing technical support for the analysis of accident dynamics.
