Would you like detailed information on traffic hazards ahead sent to your smartphone? Or would you like to share your observations with others? The road traffic hazard communications trial is being expanded again and is now available to all drivers in southern Finland. In particular, it is hoped that more professional drivers will join the trial.
Imagine a situation where visibility is rapidly reduced due to blowing snow, you witness a traffic accident or notice a hazard on the road – what if you could receive a real-time warning from other road users? Or, would you like to be able to warn other road users? This is an invitation to join the trial in which road users will send and receive warnings on the Helsinki and Tampere Ring Roads, as well as on the roads from Helsinki to Espoo, Turku, Tampere and Lahti.
“The transport sector is undergoing huge changes. Digitalisation, automation, the sharing economy and new services are transforming transport markets all over the world,” said Kari Wihlman, Director General of the Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) at the Trafi 2016 stakeholder event at Finlandia Hall today, 14 October 2016.
Around two-thirds of traffic suicides occur in rail traffic and one third in road traffic, according to a new study by Trafi, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Finnish Transport Agency and Liikenneturva. Joint intent, cooperation between actors and a wide range of measures are the keys to suicide prevention. Assessing fitness to drive also emerged as a way of preventing traffic suicides.
Trafi has granted test plates to three Finnish research organisations for the testing of automatic cars in traffic.
In the trial, over 1,000 road users are to use a mobile application to receive and transmit information about potentially hazardous road traffic conditions, such as obstacles on the road, poor visibility or traffic accidents.
Trafi, The Finnish Transport Agency and Nokia HERE have signed an agreement on June 29, 2015, on a three-year pilot project, NordicWay, Coop. During the project, cars will utilize the mobile network to share specific and low latency traffic safety information regarding e.g. obstacles on the road, weather conditions, slippery surfaces and accidents. Voluntary drivers will download a mobile application in their smartphones to connect and share information with other vehicles on the road.
The Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) and the company Ajovarma Oy have today, on 9 June, signed a contract on the provision of services related to driving examinations and driving licences. The contract will take effect on 1 January 2016.
The increasing use of automation in road traffic will be changing operating practices in many ways, but current legislation already allows the use of automated vehicles in traffic in Finland.

In June 2014, Trafi opened up its first register data base, destined for utilisation by citizens and enterprises alike. This free and open body of data has now been expanded. The new data includes the odometer reading, the first three digits of the postal code, and the first ten digits in the vehicle identification number.
“Being a responsible actor and using information in a new way are factors that enable deregulation,” said Kari Wihlman, Director General of Trafi, at the currently ongoing State of Transport seminar in Helsinki. The new opportunities facilitated by information and new ways of leveraging the official status of the agency are already apparent in the transport system today and will increase in the future.
”Information has dramatically increased its role in society in recent years. Big data, mass data, very large data, raw data, open data, data analytics, digitisation...,” Trafi’s Information Director and Director General for Data Resources, Mia Nykopp, lists the various types of information that affect our lives. Trafi is actively involved in the 10th ITS European Congress in Helsinki, held on 16–19 June, 2014.
