 Q:   Ask a Question about Car and Road Safety       
Car and Road Safety Unnecessary and avoidable accidents

The amount of road deaths in the world is at a ridiculously high level. It strikes as completely unnecessary and totally avoidable. A recent report claimed that over 350 people a day are killed because of road traffic related issues - and that is in Europe alone. This has a profound effect upon every single person, being exposed to potential, injury or death every time you go out on the road.

Every single driver or road user, including pedestrians and cyclists have to make the effort to obey and adhere to the road rules, common courtesy to fellow road users and allowing common sense to prevail when using any road. Even as a non-road user it is ones duty to educate those around you as to the potentials of crossing a road or being aware of th e road users.

The speed at which one chooses to travel is also a high contributor of road fatalities, it has been recorded by an international organization that the mere reduction of speed by 3km per hour would save over 5000 lives and prevent over 120,000 crashes per year, once again just in Europe alone. These are just figures that could have been avoided and doesn't include the cost factors pertaining to collisions, medical expenses and rehabilitation of injuries.

There are some basic rules that each and everyone can implement immediately to curtail this unnecessary road carnage, and these include; Correct utilization of vehicle's lights and turning signals, monitoring and consistency of speed, safe following distances, obeying the rules of the road, consideration of fellow road users, self improvement by learning better driving techniques, educating your children or friends on appropriate and considerate road use and motor vehicle roadworthiness.

The above represent just a few ideas of where one can contribute to safer roads, and thereby ensuring the safety of all. If each and every one of us at least attempts to integrate some of these ideas and practices, surely we can make a difference, in not only our lives, but also all those innocent road users too.
