Standards of knowledge and quality of road safety research: how much do we really know about what works in preventing traffic injury?
Few road safety evaluation studies are methodologically rigorous. Strictly speaking, one can argue for rejecting more than 90 % of them as flawed. It is nevertheless possible to trust at least some of the studies? I will argue that this is possible, mainly by developing theory about the effects of road safety measures.
