The Special Issue, “Transportation Safety Management: Perspectives for Sustainability”, is focused on keeping the required safety level for different aspects of sustainable transportation. Transport safety and sustainable transportation are both very important issues, but cannot be regarded in contradiction. Nowadays, new technologies and ideas generate new solutions for transportation, but new threats also appear. Identifying and suppressing them are big challenges for both researchers and practitioners. Thus, the Special Issue should draw the attention of scientists and transportation decision makers. Works related to increasing the safety level of sustainable transportation are welcome.
Sustainable transportation is a term covering many aspects of technology, management, and policy. For instance, the considered area extends from using dedicated smartphone apps to completely rearranging the urban traffic by building urban road tunnels. Social and environmental impacts should also be considered. Some of the proposed ideas may require changes in travelers’ behavior. Recent technological developments have resulted in new solutions, whose far-reaching effects are not yet fully grasped. This can pose a situation of unawareness of some threats. As the matter is complex, many interdependences need to still be revealed. One should keep in mind that technical and management approaches are bound together and are both equally important.
Therefore, this Special Issue, “Transportation Safety Management: Perspectives for Sustainability”, welcomes papers covering the detailed solutions, wide area systems, or theoretical models of the discussed problems, which will finally lead to increasing the safety levels of modern sustainable transportation.
Topics covered in the Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- sustainable transportation
- transportation safety and transportation safety management
- formal methods and models of safety issues for sustainable transportation
- emerging solutions of safety issues for sustainable transportation
- transportation safety policies
- new challenges of transportation safety
