 Summary:
 One of the most important road surface characteristics, which has a significant impact on traffic safety, is the total value of available friction. In order to access to the relevant analysis of the state of road network, it is crucial to use high-quality measuring devices. Measurements should result in accurate and useful georeferenced data. The paper analyzes the state of the road network in Serbia based on microtexture, or the friction between tires and pavement.
