Increased travel by bicycle is an important part of sustainable transportation. An increase in cycling will also have positive effects on public health and the development of attractive towns and cities. At the same time, there are major and serious problems associated with the road safety of cyclists.
The strategy for safer cycling has been developed so that it will be possible for the players and stakeholders concerned to contribute effectively towards an improved standard of safety for cyclists. This is part of the joint efforts of the players involved in Tillsammans för Nollvisionen (Togetherfor Vision Zero) and for increased cycling.
