"Debater: as many as one million motorists have trafikfarligt poor eyesight"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. ”Soon turns the” I hear the lady in the queue in the Coop saying to the cashier. ”Soon we go towards lighter times,” she continues. "
"We have lived with the darkness for a couple of months now that december is coming to an end. With darkness came the rain and it took several weeks to get used to, not least when driving in the dark. "
"It simply becomes more difficult to see other road users – especially if they are not carrying the reflex – or if the sun is exceptionally rays of the sun stands so low that the driver easily dazzled. Suddenly slamming it. Pang! For far too many take life end there. Statistics can be a painful reality."
"Earlier this fall, reported the TT to 2018 is the ”the deadliest year in traffic in many years”. At the end of June, the number of fatal accidents increased by 21 per cent compared to the same period of the previous year; 136 people were killed during the first six months of this year. "
"Since 1997, Sweden has a vision zero which aims that no one - no one - should be killed or seriously injured in traffic. The government has also set a target to halve the number of people killed in traffic by the year 2020. "
"It is not very much forward to it, but I am convinced that we can change it."
"the transport agency will analyse what the increase in the number of fatalities depends on the. It is not proven that it is road traffic accidents as a result of impaired vision. One reason is that the Strada, an information system for data on injuries and accidents on the roads, do not have view as a parameter. "
"In the recent Synbesiktningen – a collaboration between the Swedish vehicle inspection and optikkedjan Synoptik – showed figures that as many as one million motorists have trafikfarligt poor eyesight. It corresponds to one of the six motorists you meet on the way."
"I welcome the fact that the government, in september 2016, the decisions to intensify road safety but I believe that we can strengthen the process by introducing requirements on the synkontroll at körkortsförnyelse after the host over 45 years – and I get echoed:"
"”this Year Synbesiktning shows that every sixth driver in perfect conditions looks blurry already at two meter distance, and every tenth motorist would not get a driver's license with the visual acuity they have today. Nine out of ten believe that the statutory synkontroller should be introduced in the renewal of the licence.”"
"Two meters. We at NTF to understand that a change in the law would cost time and money for individual motorists. A synkontroll usually takes 15 minutes and costs about 350 sek. Over ten years, the period of validity for the B license, it will be about one minute and 35 crowns per year. For a significant increase of road safety. And 9 out of 10 people support the synkontroll at körkortsförnyelse. A new way to approach the goal of a zero vision is, in our opinion, wide open."
"I understand that politicians need to make trade-offs. How many of the constituents covered by the reform? How much does the reform of the state and to what else can the money be used? Unfortunately, the growth in the number of deaths that we can't wait actions. Syntester is not a universal solution but syntester in connection with the körkortsförnyelse for those who are 45 years of age would be a major step on the way."
"a higher category of driving licence, for example, taxi deregulation, have already in the day to do your eye test in connection with the körkortsförnyelse. It systems and administrative routines to manage syntester are in place and can be used for all driving licence holders."
"I don't want any accident in traffic will depend on the running look bad. Therefore: let us introduce compulsory optometry in conjunction with the körkortsförnyelse."
