Traditional approaches to road safety are not sufficient to address the problem of road safety. Therefore, the insurance application system, which seeks holistic and systemic solutions to road accidents manner proposed. It is assumed that the road system is complex and its component elements should be designed taking into account the system as a whole. The application of this new perspective in Latin America involves major challenges, such as building institutions capable of putting into operation the measures or generating awareness among professionals involved in the road design.
