ASIRT provides road safety information as a service to the traveling public. RTRs are intended to represent general road conditions, driving environments, quality of public transportation, medical care and emergency response. ASIRT updates RTRs on a regular basis. However, due to mitigating circumstances, such as the impact of weather conditions, construction, new legislation, and, in some countries, the lack of reliable data, our updates may not be entirely accurate. For additional information on a specific issue, contact the embassy in your destination country.
