Sweden awarded for work on Road Safety

Sweden’s Vision Zero in unique. The country has now been awarded the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its Vision Zero. The price was founded 1987 and is every year awarded an organization working extraordinarily to improve traffic safety. The price is given by His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, New York May 2nd 2012.

Sweden’s long-term road safety goal is that there should be no fatalities or serious injuries in road traffic. This goal was ratified by the Swedish Parliament in 1997 and is based on the "Vision Zero" programme. Sweden is already among those countries with the lowest number of traffic fatalities in relation to its population. This is not enough, however. Swedish road safety work is based on a refusal to accept human death or lifelong suffering as a result of road traffic.
