Strategy and vision are vital to road safety work and the Swedish 'Vision Zero' has been a source of inspiration, but the road towards any vision starts here and now. In Britain, for example, the Government's road safety strategy and targets for 2010 were announced in March 2000. The general arrangements are outlined for implementation of the strategy by central and local government working with the other stakeholders within Britain in the light of the responsibility of the European Union for vehicle safety measures. Monitoring is taking the form of annual statistical reports and more comprehensive 3-yearly reviews. A pragmatic longer-term vision for road safety in Britain is pooposed, which would imply about 500 deaths/year compared with about 3,400 now
