When considering road safety, applying the appropriate infrastructure and methods of using it occurs. Thus, it seem important to ask the question not only how to gather the information, but also, how to manage it. Possessing information does not equal using it, therefore, there have been analysed the methods used to gather and manage the information concerning the traffic incidents and the warnings about the conditions that could possibly increase the probability of the occurrence of such happenings. The comparative analysis and short overview have been performed for the requirements of hereby article so as to address the abovementioned issues. Those have led to creating short portfolio of most interesting solutions that may be applicable to the systems monitoring the safety in high density road infrastructure. The conclusions try to answer the questions which highlight the correlation that is perceived between the effective use of the chosen method and the information management approach, as well as the correlation between the scope of the investment performed and the effectiveness of the launched solution. It may happen the latter may not be directly linked with the former, although it cannot be denied that many of the systems are usually a bit expensive.
