This paper proposes an approach for the relative assessment of damage caused along roads by landslides and floods, which are known as Rainfall-Related Phenomena (RRP). The proposed approach aims to obtain (a) the trend of phenomena occurrences through the analysed period, classified in terms of both the type of triggering phenomenon and relative damage; (b) the location of damage data, allowing the creation of a map of critical points that must either be monitored during rainfall periods or urgently need defensive work; and (c) a sketch of the primary circumstances that lead to human injuries along the analysed road. Finally, an application for a road track in Calabria (Southern Italy) is presented.
