Abstract [en]

The issue of how to improve traffic safety is an international concern. To stem the road death epidemic, the United Nations have set the target of halving traffic fatalities by 2020. Every year, 1.25 million people are killed in road crashes and up to 50 million are seriously injured. Road crashes kill more people than malaria or tuberculosis and are among the ten leading causes of death. Their economic cost is estimated at 2-5% of GDP in many countries.

The Vision Zero as well as the Safe System approach and methods offer something for every country and situation - even though some interventions fit better in some countries than others.  The special session about Vision Zero and Safe Systems will highlight and discuss important aspects having been proved effective to decrease road deaths and injuries.
