Our transport policy pursues the principle of sustainability. We ensure mobility and simultaneously overcome its negative effects. This includes reducing resource consumption and pollutant emissions. This is achieved by optimising the transport system as a whole and the innovativeness of the mobility industry itself. New transport telematics and traffic guidance system applications are able to smooth out traffic flows, find optimal routes and logistically track freight. Transfer and combined usage are additionally facilitated by linking the various modes of transport.
The Federal Government's aim is for all modes of transport in union to form an efficient and modern overall transport system. As a result of this, regions of high traffic density can be relieved, creating development opportunities for structurally weak areas at the same time. With innovative system solutions, such an overall transport system also ensures increased traffic safety. On roads, rails, water and in the air.

Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations (FEMA)
The Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations (FEMA) is the representative federation of motorcycle (comprising all powered two-wheeled vehicles) users throughout Europe. FEMA represents the interests' of citizens' national organisations at the European Union and agencies of the United Nations. FEMA's primary objective is to pursue, promote and protect the interests of motorcyclists.
FEMA recognises that motorcycles have different characteristics from other vehicles and emphasises the need for motorcyclists' specific requirements to be addressed.
European countries have a national road safety research programme, usually led by the national Ministry of Transport. In most countries, there is a single organisation which provides the primary focus for the execution and implementation of this programme. The Forum of European Road Safety Research Institutes (FERSI) was created in 1991 to bring together these national research organisations to provide a common focus for road safety research at the European level.
FEVR - European Federation of Road Traffic Victims
European Federation of Road Traffic Victims
FEVR’s main aims are:
• to offer support and help to road crash victims by providing free emotional, practical and juridical assistance
• to contribute to road safety by highlighting road danger and the causes of crashes in order to influence institutions and authorities towards implementing and enforcing road safety measures far more effectively.
FHWA - Federal Highway Administration
The vision of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is to create the best transportation system in the world for the American people through proactive leadership, innovation, and excellence in service. We also provide expertise, resources, and information to continually improve the quality of our nation's highway system and its intermodal connections.
The FIA Foundation has been established in the United Kingdom as a registered charity with a donation of $300 million made by the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the governing body of world motor sport and the international association of motoring organisations.
Our objectives are to promote public safety and public health, the protection and preservation of human life and the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment .
Improved frontal impact protection throught a world frontal impact dummy
The Improved Frontal Impact Protection through a World Frontal Impact Dummy (FID) is a project with as general objective to contribute to the reduction of the amount of injuries and death car occupants involved in frontal collisions. Within this project, a frontal impact dummy prototype (instrumented, 50th percentile male) with realistic movements and injury indicating measurements, durability, repeatability will be developed together with a set of requirements for frontal dummies, which correlate the dummy response with injuries sustained by the human body. The consortium exists of six experienced and multidisciplinary partners from five different European countries. An important benefit of this project is that it will contribute to the harmonisation of safety regulations world-wide and in particular between Europe and the United States.

Fully optimised road maintenance
FORMAT is a three year 4.5 million Euro research project that started in February 2002. Approximately 45% of the funding is from the European Commission and the balance is from the consortium of 20 organisations that is conducting the research from 14 European countries and from the United States. The FORMAT consortium comprises national highway research organisations, road owners, universities, contractors, consultants and trade associations.
