Should Pedestrian Injuries and Fatalities Be A Warning That Requires Fixing the Design of Intersections?

For the past 20 years, Sweden has been building intersections and transportation systems that try to achieve an annual goal of reaching zero pedestrian deaths throughout the country. They named this 1997 Legislative initiative "Vision Zero." The Swedes have narrowed city streets, lowered speed limits, and built intersections that prioritize pedestrian safety. Additionally, Swedes have changed their mind-set and they view collisions between pedestrians and vehicles as not a punishable event for the driver but as a warning that a fix is required and an investigation must be launched to find safer designs (a differently timed light, a better lit intersection... ect.).
