Samenvatting This paper focuses on road safety for sustainable modes, namely non-motorized transports. Even though 90 % of road injuries occur in developing countries, sustainable mobility and public transport passengers represents 90% of them. 2020 forecasts are quite alarming as these figures may increase by 65 % while safety will increase in high-income countries. Nowadays, sustainable mobility users suffer of barriers effects created by policies toward road motorized transport. Hence, sustainable mobility became less safe and less competitive. A sustainable solution could be low speeds with consistent road designs in order to obtain an equilibrium among all road users. For the covering abstract see ITRD E139491.
