According to IRF Executive Vice President Mike Dreznes: "In many developing countries, safe road and roadside management remains the exception rather than the norm. Unprotected utility posts, barrier ends or work zones are all routine problems which place road users at risk and trigger serious injury and death. It all begins with training, and making the right design and treatment choices. There are too few qualified road safety professionals, and even fewer who possess a thorough understanding of, and the means to assess, roadside engineering issues and the means to remedy them".
