In 1989, the second Parliamentary Transport Committee produced a draft Transport 2000 report, which defined the general objectives for transport policy and proposed stances in principle. The Committee proposed in its 1991 report the objective of halving the number of traffic fatalities by the year 2000. The starting level was for the year 1989, when 734 people died in road traffic. In 1992, on the basis of the Committee's proposals, the Consultative Committee on Road Safety drew up a road safety work plan for 1993-1996. In summer 1993, the Council of State made a Decision in Principle on Improving Road Safety. The Council of State set its objectives in line with the Committee's proposal. The decision is based on the main strategies of the road safety work plan. This plan is aimed at achieving the Council of State's objective. It follows on from the previous plan and is aimed at the period from 1997 to the year 2000. The plan is based on the second Parliamentary Transport Committee's report, the plan for 1993-1996, current safety problem areas according to bodily injury accident data and visions for the operating environment of the future in road safety work, and the threats and opportunities facing the work over the next few years. This paper discusses the plan.
