The report presents an analysis of the potential for improving road safety in Sweden, the cost-effectiveness of road safety measures, and the effects of these measures with respect to other policy objectives. The analysis shows that there is a huge potential for improving road safety in Sweden. Benefits are greater than costs for measures that can reduce fatalities by about 50% and the number of injured road users by about 25%, The costs of trying to reduce fatalities and injures even more are, however, very high. A programme designed according to the principles of Vision Zero leads to conflicts with other policy objectives, especially mobility.
