Star Ratings are based on road inspection data and provide a simple and objective measure of the level of safety which is ‘built-in’ to the road for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Five-star roads are the safest while one-star roads are the least safe.
Importantly, Star Ratings can be completed without reference to detailed crash data, which is often unavailable in low-income and middle-income countries.
