Vision Zero 2030


Vision Zero 2030 will set out the long-term vision for road safety policy in Portugal and establish the corresponding strategic and operational goals that will be implemented through biennial action plans within a 10-year strategy and will be based on the Safe System approach and aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Second Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, the Stockholm Declaration, and the EU goals.


Since road safety is a shared responsibility and a commitment for all, the new strategy will be a document that collects contributions from the whole of civil society, so that everyone can identify with and contribute to the fight against road crashes. In drawing up the strategy, the following aspects shall be guaranteed:

The technical quality of the strategy and action plans

A high participation rate with a broad diversity of contributions

Involvement of the main entities from the public and private sectors, and civil society

The inclusion of future challenges and alignment with other public policies

Credibility and feasibility

Com base nas experiências do passado, identificaram-se alguns princípios para a Visão Zero 2030 e mais especificamente para os vários Planos de Ação.

Drawing up the road safety strategy

There are three main tasks involved in drawing up the road safety strategy, prior to its public consultation and final approval

Align the proposed general approach of the Portuguese road safety strategy with international and national commitments and common visions for this area

Analyse the state of Road Safety in Portugal and make international comparisons in order to identify guidelines and principles that are relevant for the new road safety strategy, recognise constraints in the implementation of the measures and interventions and establish guidelines for drawing up biennial action plans

Based on the results of the previous tasks, prepare the document that proposes the Portuguese road safety strategy for the next 10 years – Vision Zero 2030 – and the first draft of the action plan
