Road Safety Data Analysis
Alongside the yearly official statistics, the Scottish Government also funds the Road Safety Analysis MAST Scotland software licence, to enable road safety partners across Scotland access to this data analysis tool. MAST provides collision data sets and tools for filtering key information, as well as mapping tolls and socio-demographic profiling of people involved in collisions.
In January of this year, survey work was initiated to determine which professionals are using the software and the levels of usage. This work is currently on-going and it is envisioned that free training will subsequently be delivered to partners in order that they may strengthen their knowledge and skills in using MAST to support incident investigation and mitigation.
