Despite continuous improvements in road and vehicle safety, road accidents still pose a significant risk. Reducing road accidents is therefore included in the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN). Road accidents often occur in specific areas. Therefore, a briefing before driving on a route could help drivers to know the danger spots and to drive more carefully and attentively at these spots. Using a design-oriented research approach, the D-TRAS team developed a concept of how briefings for traffic-related hazards can be designed. An exemplary web application was also developed for this purpose.

In their article and talk, D-TRAS presented the application and further findings.
