Special Issue Information
We would like to cordially invite you contribute to this Special Issue on “Technology, User Behavior and Infrastructure for Sustainable Traffic Safety”.
Sustainable traffic safety is an important way of preventing traffic accidents, maintaining traffic operation order and ensuring the stable development of the urban economy. Therefore, it is critical to study traffic safety from the aspects of intelligent transportation technologies, user behaviors and traffic infrastructures.
The robust performance of a transportation system relies on two components: safety and sustainability. Traditionally, transportation safety has focused on the reduction in crash frequency and injury severity, while sustainability has emphasized the social, mobile and environmental benefits. However, these two components are not disconnected, but interact with each other to bring synergy to enhance the system performance. It is understandable that a transportation system would not be sustainable if it is not safe, by generating a lot of crashes and causalities. In other words, safety is the first priority and prerequisite for mobility, social benefits and environmental accommodation. On the other hand, it is also necessary to balance between safety and mobility for multimodal transportation systems, given different land context classifications and roadway functions. Therefore, it should be our goal to achieve sustainable traffic safety for reliable transportation systems.
This Special Issue aims to offer a platform for professionals worldwide to share research insights and achievements towards safe and sustainable transportation systems, focusing on technological developments and applications, user behavior analyses and smart infrastructure design.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Human behavior analysis for safety of all road user types;
- Smart Infrastructure to improve road user safety;
- Safety and mobility trade-off in roadway safety design and analysis;
- Theory modelling and innovative technologies in sustainable transportation system;
- Modelling and application of emerging road traffic conflict technology;
- Surrogate safety measures for collision avoidances;
- Roles of human factors in sustainable road traffic safety;
- Emerging path discovery and decision support algorithm for improving sustainable traffic safety;
- Data-driven methods for road traffic evaluation and management;
- Advanced technology on investigation, analysis and prevention of road traffic accidents.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
