Intertraffic ON AIR: Improving Road Safety, working towards Vision Zero

Event date: 
22 Jun 2021

The only way to really bring the number of traffic victims down is the employment of a 'vision zero’ and ‘safe system' approach. Herein, the entire design of traffic and the lay-out of road and cycle infrastructure is centered around the most fallible and vulnerable road users: humans. According to the OECD, pioneers Sweden and The Netherlands introduced a proactive, integral approach in the 1990s, using labels as 'Vision Zero' (Sweden) and 'Sustainable Road Safety' (NL).

What has been done so far, what are the successes and challenges when it comes to road safety and what kind of new smart roadside equipment and driver assistance systems have been developed to improve road safety? The talk show guests will tell you all about the opportunities and hurdles we still need to overcome. SWOV managing director van der Knaap will take part in the discussion.
