In his article Are Vehicle Travel Reduction Targets Justified? he looks at whether transportation policies should include targets to reduce vehicle travel and encourage use of alternative modes, called mobility management or transportation demand management.
When the City of London, England implemented congestion charges in 2003, vehicle travel decreased by 14% and traffic injuries and deaths were reduced by 25%. Reducing exposure reduced the risk.
