Abstract Road collisions are a problem world-wide. Related to the kilometers traveled on public roads agricultural vehicles (AVs) are over-represented in reported numbers of traffic victims. We aim to investigate how agricultural engineering can reduce accidents with AVs involved on public roads. We therefore relate so-called accident factors to the 3 road system components; driver, vehicle and road. We summarize the significance of 10 accident factors and describe possible preventive measures from an engineering perspective. We show that all road system components may attribute to a structural improvement of traffic safety with AVs on public roads. Agricultural engineering can play a role in each of them.
