Vision Zero suggests the following "possible long term maximum travel speeds related to the infrastructure, given best practice in vehicle design and 100% restraint use". [5] These speeds are based on human and automobile limits. For example, the human tolerance for a pedestrian hit by a well-designed car is approximately 30 km/h. If a higher speed in urban areas is desired, the option is to separate pedestrian crossings from the traffic. If not, pedestrian crossings, or zones (or vehicles), must be designed to generate speeds of a maximum of 30 km/h. Similarly, the inherent safety of well-designed cars can be anticipated to be a maximum of 70 km/h in frontal impacts, and 50 km/h in side impacts. Speeds over 100 km/h can be tolerated if the infrastructure is designed to prevent frontal and side impacts.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) agrees; in 2015, the organisation released a Global Status report on road safety in 180 countries exploring the issue. Worldwide more than million people are killed on roads each year - more than 3400 people a day - making it the ninth leading cause of death globally. The ripple effect goes much wider, with up to 50 million people injured yearly. It's estimated these injuries make up almost 50% of hospital bed occupants in the world's surgical wards. Overall the cost of road crashes and their domino effects for ongoing health costs and medical treatment amount to between 1 – 3% of a country's gross domestic product – the higher this figure is, the lower the country's income. These costs not only potentially offset aid to poorer countries but also divert medical resources away from treating less preventable health issues.
