Advanced is a study of post-licence driver and rider training co-financed by the European Commission. It describes and analyses voluntary, post-licence training and makes a series of recommendations on how to improve such training. It emphasises the importance of avoiding overconfidence amongst trainees and indicates how training can be more effective and balanced.
Advancing Sustainable Safety
Advancing Sustainable Safety critically examines the Sustainable Safety vision. Adaptations were made where necessary, because we have learned since our initial steps on the way towards a sustainably safe traffic. Advancing insights and new developments have also prompted the update of this vision.
Action for advanced Driver assistance and Vehicle control systems Implementation,
Standardisation, Optimum use of the Road network and Safety.
Research and development have created a range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that may facilitate the tasks of drivers in the growing complexity of traffic conditions. ADAS are fitted to an ever larger number of road vehicles, while it is not clear how they impact on environmental and safety performance of the road transport system.
The goal of AINO is to develop the collection, management and utilisation of real time information in transport and thereby to create prerequisites for concrete ITS services, which will improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of the transport systems as well as increase the well-being of citizens and the competitiveness of Finnish companies.
AKE (Finnish Vehicle Administration) promotes vehicle safety and environmental-friendliness and provides vehicle information services for private citizens, state authorities and companies. AKE operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

Even though road fatalities per year have fallen by almost percent since 1990, they still numbered almost 40 000 in 2001. Despite early reductions, the number of road injuries has been rising again since 1993 and is now almost equal to the level in 1990 (Source: European environment agency). The decrease in the number of road transport fatalities and increase in the number of injuries at increasing number of road accidents can, amongst others, be explained by introduction of improved technologies for newer vehicles and higher vehicle safety standards
APSN - Advanced Passive Safety Network
