Stockholm - Vision Zero {Webinar}

Simon Fraser University

April 12, 11 am PDT

Free webinar, but reservations required. Reserve

One of the paradoxes of transportation systems is that air, sea and rail sectors are characterized by a safety culture where accidents are rare and exhaustively investigated, and systemic improvements are made to avoid repetition, whereas road networks appear to have an inbuilt but never explicitly stated tolerance for an “acceptable” level of serious injury and death. Sweden was the first country to refute this paradigm with Vision Zero, whose concept is equally simple and powerful: That death and serious injury in the roading system is unacceptable and the transportation system should be designed to prevent it. As a result, Sweden now has the safest roads of any country on earth. Daniel Firth, the Chief Strategy Officer for Transport for the City of Stockholm, will present on how Stockholm is applying Vision Zero in a dense urban context.
