The research was aimed to develop policies that would help attain the road transport policy goals (accidents, traffic flow and pollution) with the implementation of “Advanced Driver Assistance System” mainly Intelligent Speed Adaptation, Adaptive Cruise Control and Longitudinal Collision Avoidance as policy options. The conflict in the implementation of these technologies is that it has positive impacts on the road traffic system but at the same time there are various uncertainties surrounding the implementation as they are new technologies.
