Leipzig – Governments need detailed knowledge of transport for policy making as the world is entering a period characterised by a radical need for good governance of transport, according to Jose Viegas, secretary general of the International Transport Forum (ITF).

“There is a big challenge for policy making and governance must be better. The transition to driverless vehicles, for instance, will be like having to treat a bleeding patient while he keeps on moving,” Viegas said at the 10th annual summit of the ITF taking place in Leipzig, Germany this week.

Automation, power trains, sustainable environmental goals, a changing political background and greater demands from citizens are some of the aspects of this changing transport environment.
