Road Safety and Non-motorized Road Users Mobility
FIAB Technical Paper no. 8 - Centro Studi Riccardo Gallimbeni
The paper aims to be both an in-depth analysis and a vademecum on the main themes related to Road safety, especially focused on Non-motorized Road Users
The topic will be addressed starting with a comprehensive analysis of accident rates in the world, in Europe and in Italy; we look in depth at the aspects particular to Italy, but all the subjects are representative of the whole European countries.
We will analyze policy options in order of effectiveness, without avoiding the more thorny issues.
We describe also the regulatory pathways being put in place, speculating on our future, trying to counter once and for all the non possumus that has too often led to fatalism about the possibility of effective self-determination in our country.
On the contrary, we can and we must, take action for environmental and social improvement, in which a healthy and sustainable mobility as an important part.
