  10. 10. Focus on implementation- and innovation processes • Vision Zero has moved our interest from the individual road users to those who design the road transport system. • Those who design the road transport system are public and private organizations. • The questions are therefore what shape a organization and its norms and behaviors and how is it possible to influence these norms and behaviors in an effective way?10 2012-01-30
