According to a recent study, poor weather conditions increase the accident risk more on motorways compared to two-lane and multiple-lane roads. The study analysed the accident risk from a single drivers’ point of view and the relative accident risk was related to the time spent on the road...
Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen are all working strategically with pedestrian prioritising and urban life. Car free city centres are high on the political agenda in many Nordic cities and in a range of European countries. New policy measures are applied and in many cases, significant...
A recent before-after study supports the earlier concept that automatic speed enforcement is an effective measure for reducing driving speeds and thus improving road safety. Since the introduction of automatic speed enforcement on a highway in Finland, the average share of vehicles speeding by over...
The TEAM project (Tomorrow’s Elastic Adaptive Mobility, 2012-2016), co-funded by the European Commission, created building blocks for connected and collaborative mobility. Eleven applications were developed for travellers and traffic management professionals to enable better mobility solutions....
More alternatives are emerging that lack the downsides of permanent speed bumps. VTI has examined the types of available dynamic speed bumps and assessed which could suit the Nordic climate. An alternative speed bump can be either passively or actively dynamic. Passively dynamic speed bumps...
