The current road transport system l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

The current road transport system

  • Major mismatch between components of the system

  • Trade-off between health and benefits allowed

  • Unclear responsibilities

  • Unclear safety philosophy

  • Weak driving forces for change


Slide5 l.jpg

History

On October 9, 1997 the Road Traffic Safety Bill founded on "Vision Zero" was passed by a large majority in the Swedish Parliament. This represents an entirely new way of thinking with respect to road traffic safety.

Goal

The long term goal is that no-one shall be killed or seriously injured within the Swedish road transport system.

Swedish Road Administration

VISION ZERO : A SAFE TRAFFIC CONCEPT

Vision for many stakeholder l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Vision for many stakeholder

  • Traffic safety is a shared responsibility for many stakeholders

  • A joint vision is a powerful tool to focus the work

  • A vision sets out a future desired situation - not a step by step action with no definition of it’s end point


Ethical platform l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Ethical platform

  • Human life and health is paramount

  • Life and health can not, in the long run, be traded against other benefits

  • Mobility is a function of the safety level


Shared responsibility l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Shared responsibility

  • Historically main responsibility on the road user

  • In Vision Zero the responsibility is shared between road users and system designers


Shared responsibility10 l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Shared responsibility

System designers are responsible for the design, operation and the use of the road transport system and are thereby responsible for the level of safety within the entire system.

Road users are responsible for following the rules for using the road transport system set by the system designers.

If the users fail to comply with these rules due to a lack of knowledge, acceptance or ability, the system designers are required to take the necessary further steps to counteract people being killed or injured.

Safety Philosophy

”Any well functioning man-machine system brings the failing human into the loop”.

”Blaming the victim approach is a catastrophe to prevention”.


Safety philosophy l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Safety philosophy

  • Inspiration from other areas ( i.e. occupational health and safety)

  • People make errors, mistakes and misjudgements

  • There are biomechanical tolerance limits

  • The chain of events can be cut at many places

  • Focus on injuries not crashes

Impaired driving

The Commission is currently conducting a review into the European Road Safety Action Programme and will, at the beginning of 2006, draw up an assessment of measures which have been taken at the European and Member State levels. Without pre-empting the conclusions of this assessment, it seems clear that the main causes of accidents remain speeding, the non-wearing of seat belts and helmets and alcohol/ drugs/ fatigue:


Alcohol in road traffic l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Alcohol in road traffic

Many road crashes are related to alcohol. The proportion is growing with crash severity

In Europe it is estimated that 25% of the severe crashes are related to alcohol.


Alcohol in swedish traffic l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Alcohol in Swedish traffic

Even very small amounts of alcohol can affect your driving ability. Sweden has a very strict law that entitles the Police to give a Breathalyzer test, even if there is no reason to suspect that you are driving under the influence of alcohol. If your blood level alcohol content is 0.2 promille or the content of alcohol in your exhaled breath is 0.10mg/l or more, this will result in a stiff fine, a prison sentence or both. You will also lose your driving license. Alcohol also remains in your system the day after you drink it. When attending a party in a Swedish home, it is customary for the hostess to ask who's driving; and non-alcoholic beverages are always provided. Do Not Drink and Drive.

Police surveillance enforcement l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Police surveillance / enforcement

  • Random breath testing (1760 000 in 2005)

    (5,7 million drivers with licence)

  • Anywhere, anytime and any policeman

    (more than 99,5 % without alcohol)

  • Well documented benefits

Rehabilitation programme l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Rehabilitation programme

  • Used by DWI offenders in rehabilitation programmes.

  • A lock that is difficult to manipulate with a reliable and accurate alcohol measuring. A log stores all the events and there is a possibility for retests at random time intervals.

  • Approximately 500 units per year

  • Very positive results for highly motivated drivers

  • Focus the highest need


Commercial transport l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Commercial transport

  • Used to ensure sober drivers

  • Transport companies, taxi, school buses, traffic schools etc

  • Demanded by for example Swedish Road Administration

  • Around 10 000 units in traffic

  • Focus the highly motivated on a market

  • Create a market for safe transports

  • Strong political will

  • High public acceptance

  • Development needs

  • Sweden wants to be test market



The swedish commission on alcolocks n 2004 16 l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

The Swedish Commission on alcolocks (N 2004:16)

The Commission on alcolocks (N 2004:16) has an assignment from the Government to investigate the possibilities to introduce demands for alkolocks or other devices to prevent drunk driving in all new cars registered in Sweden by the year 2012 at the latest.

We want an earlier introduction of an alkolock obligation for buses and lorries by 2010. The Commission will also look into the steps to be taken to increase the acceptance and use of alcolocks.


Impaired driving challenges l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

Impaired driving, challenges

Price and handling must suite high volume introduction

Can systems be developed that can handle all kinds of impaired driving? (Alcohol, fatigue, illegal drugs etc.)

What should the car do when impaired/dangerous driving is detected?

Legal obstacles, responsibility etc.

Slide49 l.jpg

Swedish Road Administration

A Review of the Literature on the Effects of Low Doses of Alcohol on Driving-Related Skills, H. Moskowitz, D. Fiorentino, U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, USA

  • Alcohol impairs some driving skills beginning with any significant departure from zero BAC. By BACs of 0.05 g/dl, the majority of the experimental studies examined reported significant impairment. By 0.08 g/dl, more than 94% of the studies reviewed exhibited skills impairment.

  • Specific performance skills are differentially affected by alcohol. Some skills are significantly impaired by BACs of 0.01 g/dl, while others do not show impairment until BACs of 0.06 g/dl.

  • Discrepancies between the reported BAC threshold of impairment within a behavioral area reflected a lack of standardization of testing methods, instruments, and measures in the studies reviewed.

  • All drivers are expected to experience impairment in some driving-related skills by 0.08 g/dl or less.
