The United States has something called Vision Zero, a goal that, by the year 2024, Washington, DC will reach zero fatalities and serious injuries to travelers, through more effective use of data, education, enforcement, and engineering. Sweden has a similar campaign with the same name. According to CityLab, their policy comes with a Traffic Safety Strategist, a guy who works to prevent fatalities and serious injuries. And apparently that guy, Matts-Åke Belin, is doing a good job because Sweden is an leader in the area of road safety. When Vision Zero first started, the country had seven traffic fatalities per 100,000 people; today, despite a significant increase in traffic volume, that number is fewer than three. In comparison, the number of road fatalities in the United States is 11.6 per 100,000.
