Safety – first

flaggor

Traffic safety, sustainable development, and fuel costs are all significant global social and political issues. Through an active corporate policy, your Company can increase its social input and simultaneously reap the benefits by improving its image and creating savings.

By far the most dangerous moments of our lives are surprisingly hiding in our daily routines – mainly in traffic. More than 50 000 people die and 1.7 million get injured in traffic-related accidents every year within just the European Union. The direct yearly cost involved for these accidents is over 45 billion euro; the indirect costs included create a figure four times larger, approximately 2 % of the total EU GNP! As you one can see, we are witnessing a grand social problem.

Simple measures within active and passive safety can improve the dire numbers significantly. Gotland Ring/driverdevelopment.org believes in decreasing the human risk through continuous driver development programmes. Simultaneous co-operation with key safety-related industries and authorities contribute to additional safety and ecology.

There are various simple ways to contribute towards a combination of sustainable development and safety. Unfortunately, motorists regularly neglect, for example, their tyres, leading to enormous individual and social costs. Various surveys and test show that the incidence of under-inflation is alarmingly high, with 44% of cars having at least one tyre at low pressure level. In addition to these motorists, a further 50% of drivers have some degree of under-inflation [test and survey information provided by Bridgestone].

Projected on a European basis of approximately 200 million cars, this means that more than 8.5 billion litres of additional petrol and diesel costing over €10 billion are being consumed due to under-inflation, resulting in releasing an unnecessary 19.2 million tons of C0² into the fragile atmosphere.

Outdoor temperature is an important variable in controlling tyre pressure levels. Inflation pressure has a strong influence on tyre rolling resistance, which is itself a key factor in determining vehicle fuel consumption. Depending on type of road and driving style, rolling resistance represents 18% to 26% of the total force on a vehicle. Since low inflation increases rolling resistance, it has a direct effect on fuel efficiency and emissions. By such a simple measure as paying attention to tyre pressure continuously, one can contribute to one’s carbon output balance and general driving safety.

Unfortunately, all actions by authorities to improve traffic safety are passive and reactive. The typical action is to find faults and blame the vehicle, road and weather conditions. Not enough emphasis is put on the human risk factor.
