Project "Educate for growth in MSK II"
In the framework of the regional individual project "Educate for growth in MSK II" reg. No. CZ.1.04/1.1.00/B1.00011 our company received from the Labour Office of the Czech Republic contribution for educational activities and contribution for labor costs of our employees for time employee participation in training. This project is financed by the European Social Fund (85%) and the state budget of the Czech Republic (15%). More about the project at: www.esfcr.cz
Grants Start ups
This year, 2014, we received a grant under the grant program "Program to support start ups in the Moravian-Silesian Region 2013 '. The organizer of the program and the grant provider is Moravian-Silesian Region, represented by the Director of the Regional Authority of the Moravian-Silesian Region. The goal of this grant program is to support the creation and development of innovative start-ups (Start ups enterprises) in the Moravian-Silesian Region in business incubators ("PI"), science and technology parks ("STP") and business and innovation centers ("PIC"). Support was provided for the costs associated with the lease and operation of non-residential spaces in the VTP, PI and PIC. More at: Start ups
History and activities of the company
RSE Project Company Ltd. was established in 2012. Its main activity is the solution of road safety, which provides a full design, project management, consulting, safety audits or safety inspections, analysis of accident sites to check the functionality of road signs, equipment, support systems and other equipment of roads. Of course, in addition to improving road safety there is also processing of project documentation itself of road signs, traffic-engineering measures, temporary signage and road construction.
Part of the company is also testing laboratory for verification of functional parameters for both vertical traffic signs as well as road markings. The laboratory has implemented a management system according to DIN EN 17025 Conformity assessment - General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. In 2013, we aim to acquire the status of an accredited laboratory.
Within the company's activities on the improvement of road safety we cooperate with The Traffic Police Inspectorates, Department of Transport towns and municipalities, the Directorate of Roads and Highways, road administrators and possibly other experts and interested institutions. Deepening of this cooperation is the organization of expert meetings "Traffic breakfast" in individual regions of the Czech Republic.
Our goal is to provide or facilitate road safety to the neediest places and not only to them, to the satisfaction of the applicant and the safety of all road users.

Protected bicycle lanes increase the safety of all road users and reduce traffic congestion by encouraging more people to use their bikes.
If you spend time in Chicago, New York or Washington DC, you can’t help but notice the bright green pavements, the flexible white bollards and the increasing number of cyclists riding in newly created, protected bike lanes. By using devices such as bollards, curbs and planters to separate bicycles and automobile traffic, these protected lanes create safer routes for cyclists. A landmark report by the New York Department of City Planning in May 1999 entitled Making Streets Safe for Cycling: Strategies for Improved Bicycle Safety, analyzed theoretical and existing on-street cycling facilities designed to minimize conflicts between cyclists and other road users. One of their key recommendations was to develop techniques to improve conventional lane definition, in conjunction with improved cycle crossings; flexible bollards or other physical separators are recommended for center-median and contraflow bicycle lanes.
Subsequent to this report, New York began to build miles of bike lanes, separated from vehicle traffic lanes, many with flexible bollards, as recommended in the 1999 report. Eventually New York City achieved more than 250 miles of bike lanes and has seen notable improvements in ridership and safety. According to the local DOT, streets with bike lanes see 40% fewer cyclist crashes ending in death or serious injury than those without. When a protected bike lane was installed on Manhattan’s Ninth Avenue, traffic-related injuries to cyclists dropped by 50%. Protected bike lanes can benefit pedestrians as well as cyclists if refuge islands, which shorten the crossing distance of wide avenues for people on foot, are included.
