Improving safety by supervision of system designers

The programme theory of Vision Zero defines that the system designers have a responsibility to take measures to prevent people from being killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents. The Swedish Road Traffic Inspectorate has been given the role of following the development and working to ensure that the system designers apply a systematic procedure in their work. Given the limited tools for the mandate of the Inspectorate and the lack of legislation supporting the programme theory of Vision Zero, the development has been positive so far. However, in order to decrease the death toll in road traffic, the supervision methods must develop and be based on a clear legislation (A). For the covering abstract of the conference see ITRD E212343.
