The volume stems from the evidence that today’s cities highly depend on mobility and deals with the inextricable link between urban and transport planning, focusing on Accessibility and Road Safety.

Accessibility planning is mainly conceived as a solution to better integrate land uses with the transport system, satisfying people's expectations to easily reach the opportunities they wish to engage in. Road Safety, that represent a significant public health and economic problem, is also highly influenced by the urban form, and should be addressed using a system-wide planning approach.

Accessibility and safety are deeply intertwined and complementary issues: accessibility should incorporate safety, to ensure that destinations are safely accessible by the users.

On the other hand, accessibility enhancing strategies can contribute to limiting the exposure to road accidents risk by providing alternatives to car use to reach the desired activities. 

Therefore, having in mind that when talking about accessibility and safety in mobility there are three factors that interact with each other (road users, vehicles, and the urban environment), the volume presents three possible techniques to better address accessibility and safety in our cities: opinion surveys, GIS-based accessibility maps and in-field inspections.
