As President of the German Road Safety Association and Vice President of the German Road Safety Council, I strongly force the way of the Vision Zero as a permanent strategy to reduce accidents and to avoid victims of the fast-growing road traffic. In this strategy are some components which have to be realized. One is an intensive campaigning for more safety by changing the behavior of the car users inside the traffic and the mobility of passengers, but also strict rules which have to be accepted by car owners and users. The third main aspect is the construction of roads with a self explaining structure (to be secure by using them). Last but not least we need a functioning rescue system for the victims of accidents which helps to save life in the worst case. All those measures have to be implement in a short time in order to achieve educational effects on the one hand and to reduce accidents on the other. Our international experience in Europe, Iran and China are good basements for the necessary roll out processes.
