The number of injuries in traffic among children and youth is reduced, but many children are still exposed to traffic accidents. It is a national goal to increase the proportion of walking and cycling. Increased cycling and walking are important for environmental reasons, but also for the health of children. It is important that increased active mobility does not lead to more injuries among children and adolescents. Measures that can promote active mobility while not increasing the risk of accidents are important. This may include: increased targeted traffic safety education, speed reduction measures, better road safety and quality on areas for walking and cycling, as well as creating follow arrangements (to kindergarten/school) for the youngest children.
