A safe Journey along the Road to Automation

article imageAutomated Lane Keeping Systems (ALKS) will be the first true step towards Automated Driving. ALKS will legally allow the driver to take their hands and eyes off the road, enabling them to participate in other activities such as watching media content on the in-vehicle display and the system functionality has been defined by the UN under Regulation 157. Initially, ALKS will only be functional in certain conditions, such as on a fully-fledged motorway where oncoming traffic is physically separated, at a maximum operational speed of 37 mph (60 Km/h).

Road Safety in the EU: Fatalities in 2021 remain well below pre-pandemic Level

article imageThe European Commission published preliminary figures on road fatalities for 2021. An estimated 19 800 people were killed in road crashes last year. This was an increase of 1 000 deaths (+5%) on 2020, but still represents almost 3 000 (-13%) fewer fatalities compared to the pre-pandemic period in 2019. The overall target is to halve the number of deaths by 2030. EU-wide, the last decade saw a fall of 36%.

The Analysis Service of personal Injury Risk in Case of minor Damage Accidents

article imageIn 2021, a total of 155 cases of engineering analysis data on the risk of injury to vehicle occupants in the event of a minor accident were provided to give a service for auto insurance companies to support appropriate insurance payments. The scope of the service is an accident in which damage less than a scratch or a dent of the bumper cover or the exterior panel that meets the "minor damage repair standards" occurs, or an accident in which the struck vehicle's "velocity change" is 8 km/h or less.

NTSB Chair Homendy calls on Local Highway Safety Leaders to Fight Like Hell for Safer Roads

article imageNational Transportation Safety Board Chair Jennifer Homendy challenged local advocates and safety leaders March 15th, 2022 to "fight like hell" and use the Safe System Approach" to reduce rising deaths and injuries on our nation's roads. The Safe System Approach is a proven way to reduce highway deaths and injuries by taking a holistic look at the entire roadway system, from planning to design to use - making all roads safer for all roadway users. Moving to a Safe System Approach is on the NTSB's Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements and has recently been embraced by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
