In conjunction with the European Roundtable on Road Safety, ERF has released a reader friendly leaflet intended at raising safety awareness among motorists through simple messages illustrating that better roads save lives.
With as many as a third of all road accidents related to the poor state of the infrastructure, ERF believes part of the answer lies in helping the drivers evaluate themselves the level of safety of the road network they are using. The resulting safety leaflet "putting you in the driving seat for safer roads" vulgarises road engineering knowledge by illustrating common situations (motorway exits, road works, vulnerable users, etc.) motorists can be confronted with. The leaflet will shortly be available in several EU languages .
