  8. 8. Avoid, Shift, Improve – a paradigm for road safety AVOID motorized travel through the integration of sustainable land use and transport planning – increasing accessibility, saving lives, and protecting the environment. SHIFT to safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly modes, such as public and non-motorized transport. Or preserve the current share of these modes, particularly in emerging economies. IMPROVE safe system design and operations, to maximize health and environmental efficiency of each kilometer traveled.
