“Vision Zero for the Balkans” Road Safety Conference

May 16, 2023 @ 09:00 - 17:00 PDT

“Vision Zero for the Balkans” Regional Road Safety Conference & Technology Showcase

The second United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 also marks the start of new forms of international collaboration to avert the continuing and growing epidemic of road traffic injuries, responsible for 1,350,000 fatalities per year. Key to the success of further efforts is the acknowledgement that no level of death or serious injury is acceptable – known as the Vision Zero approach.

The Balkan region currently experiences a much higher proportion of road crash-related deaths & serious injuries per million inhabitants than the EU27. These losses – in lives, human capital, and infrastructure – represent an enormous cost for communities to bear, and they are largely preventable. Improving road safety through transformative approaches that create a safe mobility system that is forgiving of human error must become a priority for the region’s policy makers and transport professionals.

Conference Objectives

  • Promote the uptake of “Vision Zero” policies and make a compelling case for safety investments
