Watch this animated video on road safety to learn more about the difference between active and passive safety systems for cars. These innovations in vehicle safety technology have made a major contribution to reducing the number of road accidents and injuries over the last decades.
However, road safety is complex and depends on lots of different factors and interactions. Cutting-edge vehicle technology is just one piece of this complex safety puzzle. Equally important are the behaviour of road users, as well as the maintenance and design of roads.
Indeed, in order to save even more lives in the future, we need to ensure that safe vehicles are driven by safe drivers on safe roads.
