The safe system approach is a leading philosophy in road safety management in high income countries and has been applied succesfully. The transformation of these experiences towards LMIC’s, however, requires additional research programs. One of the issues is whether and how intelligent support systems may offer opportunities to accelerate safety improvements in LMIC’s in the near future. Godthelp presented a vision paper on this issue at the PIARC World Road Congress 2019. He elaborated the issue later in an article in Traffic Safety Research.
