The end of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety in 2020 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.

Taking human fallibility and vulnerability into account must thus become paramount priorities for all actors of the road transport system.
