Founded in 1927, Volvo has a long history of putting safety first in their vehicles. Volvo Trucks has recently announced its Zero Accident Vision, an idyllic vison of a world where Volvo trucks are never involved in truck accidents. Despite their high hopes, the people at Volvo are realistic. They estimate that 1.2 million people are fatally injured worldwide in accidents on roads every year. They also recognize that approximately 90 percent of all accidents are caused by human factors, and know that a change of mindset is needed to make safety the top priority.
For its Zero Accident Vision, Volvo is calling on the involvement of politicians, public authorities, and experts at universities and research labs to come up with solutions for eliminating accidents. They recognize that truck manufacturers, infrastructure planners, authorities, and other experts will have to work together to make the vision a reality. They also believe that reducing accidents can only happen when human behaviors change.
