There are 33 billion meters of road on Earth. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT) nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. How can you help lower this number?
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.
With each TripTime purchase, you have access to our PCyou Personal Portal where you can view international road reports from ASIRT. These are destination-specific and provide you with information on a location's driving habits, roads to avoid and much more.
ASIRT reports that many countries have shown sharp reductions in the number of crashes and casualties by taking actions including:
Raising awareness of, legislating and enforcing laws governing speed limits, alcohol impairment, seat-belt use, child restraints and safety helmets.
Formulating and implementing transport and land-use policies that promote safer and more efficient trips; encouraging the use of safer modes of travel, such as public transport; and incorporating injury prevention measures into traffic management and road design.
Making vehicles more protective and visible for occupants, pedestrians and cyclists; using daytime running lights, high-mounted brake lights and reflective materials on cycles, carts, rickshaws and other non-motorized forms of transport.
ROAD SAFETY IS A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY. Do your part by educating yourself before you travel.
Safe. Informed. Protected.
