Overlooking dangers or ensuring safety?

No more fatal road crashes - this is the goal of the "Vision Zero" movement.
Our road safety white paper explains how this vision can become a reality.

Planning save mobility

Prevent accidents. Save lives.

Over 3,000 people are killed in road accidents every day. That's the equivalent of more than four fully-occupied Airbus A-380s - the world's largest passenger aircraft. The reasons for traffic accidents are not only human error. Deficiencies in infrastructure or unclear traffic regulations also play an important role. This is where we have to start, if we want to reduce the number of accidents or set the number of fatalities at zero, as the "Vision Zero" movement is striving for.

On the way to becoming the safest city in the world

Traffic safety has been an integral part of traffic planning in the city of Basel for years. The efforts are bearing fruit: accident figures are constantly falling, and Basel is considered the safest city in Switzerland. However, the Basel-City Cantonal Police are not yet satisfied: they want to make Basel the safest city in the world in terms of traffic safety - and are using PTV Visum Safety to achieve this. Read how the police use the traffic modeling software to achieve their goals.

Why data are the key to improving road safety

The province of Arezzo in the Italian Tuscany has set itself the goal of increasing road safety and, in particular, reducing serious accidents with fatal consequences. The approach: not to introduce regulations in response to accidents that have already occurred, but to take road safety into account at the strategic planning stage. How can traffic planning software support this process?
