The Vision Zero was conceived in 1994. Like all good ideas, this one travelled fast. Just three years later, Parliament passed a Road Traffic Safety Bill that wrote the Vision Zero into Swedish law. The bill sets an ultimate target of no deaths or serious injuries on Sweden’s roads and is not satisfied with merely reducing accidents to an economically manageable level. Sweden has since modelled its road safety reform strategy on the Vision Zero approach.

The Vision Zero has also contributed to competence and technical developments that we think can be useful the rest of the world because road safety is still one of the greatest safety risks for people around the world.
