Vehicle technologies are rapidly moving forward; therefore, vehicle safety today is incomparable to that of 20 or 30 years ago, let alone that of vehicles manufactured even earlier than that. It is generally now quite difficult to get into a fatal or severe accident driving a modern vehicle at the permitted speed. However, lots of road accidents still happen every day, with people killed or injured. Furthermore, there are always vulnerable road users on our roads, whose safety mainly depends on drivers’ attention and awareness level.
The safest way to move is by maintaining speed which is as low as possible—such as walking or at least running speed, in which no one can suffer serious physical harm in the event of an accident. Moreover, making sure that wearing a helmet is the prevalent behavior on our roads would lead to an easier implementation of Vision Zero. Unfortunately, humanity will probably never return to such speeds again. Therefore, what is the future of road users, and what kind of technologies and opportunities will ensure their safety? These questions are not only more relevant than ever before today, but they also remain open to sustainable ideas and modern technologies.
This is thus a call for everyone to help us to move forward, solve issues of traffic safety, and protect each other.
