​The objective of this project is to collect new real-world road accident data and to make the collected data available to the Swedish road safety research community. Road safety constantly presents new issues and challenges that require recent in-depth data, to support potentially life-saving research. Creating a transparent and independent in-depth road accident dataset benefits the road users, in terms of new interventions and life-saving policies and less suffering.
