3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety: AEG completes report

8 October 2019

For three days in early October in Stockholm, the Academic Expert Group (AEG) continued with its work to finalize its report with recommendations for the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety

Claes Tingvall, chairman of the Academic Expert Group, was pleased with the work on the preparation of the report and the nine recommendations saying, ''When road safety, security, climate and other sustainable development goals are combined, you get a fantastic force. And then a lot will happen, as opposed to focusing only on one area.''

  • Reduced speed in cities - the Academic Expert Group wants to reduce urban speeds to 30 kilometers per hour, unless it can be proven that a higher speed is safe.
  • Greater responsibility - the Academic Expert Group points out that there´s also a questions about responsibility for road safety. Traditionally, discussions about road safety have often been about the responsibilities of governments and authorities - but more actors and factors should be involved - among other things, utility traffic, business and cities.
  • Procurement is an important part of the chain - there is room for improvement , for example by ensuring that road safety and sustainability become parameters in procurement. There should be quality assurance throughout the transport chain.

The report will soon be available, meanwhile for more information about the conference, please click here.
