The Safe System approach to road safety is based on asserting the responsibility of the system operators for safety, promoted early in Australia as the accountability of the political system for road safety (Job, Fleming & Brecht, 1989), famously promoted in the USA by Ralph Nader (1965) in relation to cars, and pioneered in Sweden in 1996 (Larsson, Dekker & Tingvall, 2010)
