Abstract: In this chapter different scenarios for improving road safety by creating a more forgiving road (FOR) and self-explanatory road (SER) environment will be selected and submitted to a multi-actor multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA). The aim of this MCA is to allow various stakeholders with an interest in improving road safety (in particular public policy makers, but also users and manufacturers) to assess to which extent the future scenarios for creating a more FOR and SER environment contribute to their specific objectives. A separate MCA will, therefore, be per-formed for each of these stakeholders taking into account the specific objectives considered relevant by them, as measured by criteria. Analysing the differences in preferences among stakeholders, and using the highest expected “added-value” from the community of stakeholders in its entirety on various FOR and SER envi-ronments, will uncover useful information on the chances of successful implemen-tation.
