Abstract
The aim of this paper is to identify whether the incentives to improve road safety in highway Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are ultimately effective in improving safety ratios. To that end Poisson and negative binomial regression models have been applied using information of highways in Spain. The findings indicate that even though road safety is highly influenced by variables that are not much controllable by the contractor such as the Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) and the percentage of heavy vehicles in the highway, the implementation of safety incentives in PPPs has a positive influence in the reduction of fatalities, injuries and accidents.
