Samenvatting This paper discusses the concept of a structurally safe traffic system. The crucial question is how potential errors occurring in traffic can be reduced by revising the layout of the road environment. Two considerations play an important role: inherent safety and self-explaining properties. Inherent safety refers to the reduction of potentially dangerous encounters. Traffic systems having self-explaining properties are designed in such a way that they are in line with the expectations of the road users. The in this paper discussed 'Self-Explaining Road' (SER) is a traffic environment which elicits safe behavior simply by its design. (Author/publisher)
