Area of Expertise in Traffic Policy
The department coordinates the representation of the interests of the automotive industry in traffic policy. The focus is on advocacy for optimal framework conditions for sustainable transport. This includes campaigning for needs-based investment in the road network and optimal use of the network. Also central are efforts to create a regulatory framework in which each mode of transport can utilize and build on its strengths, while at the same time enabling smooth interlinking of modes of transport. On the VDA side, the department also oversees the Urban Mobility Platform, in which German cities and the automotive industry work together to shape the urban mobility of tomorrow. Another priority is road safety.
