DEKRA presents new Road Safety Report
Potential of modern technology not exploited
- More than 500 lives could be saved in Germany alone
- EU Charter objectives would be reached by 2010
STUTTGART - DEKRA is appealing to the national and the European powers that be to take advantage of the safety potential already available by initiating the blanket introduction of electronic driver assistant systems and by shortening the inspection intervals in the interest of road safety. This would enable the declared objective of the European Road Safety Charter of the European Commission, which sets out to reduce the number of road accident fatalities by 2010 to 25,000, to be reached after all.
