The Socio-Economic Benefits of Roads in Europe was produced by the International Road Federation (IRF) Research Council in 2007 and offers an informative insight into roads as a key sector of the European economy. This study demonstrates the tremendous economic impact of roads and road transport-related sectors on the European economy. It encompasses relevant statistics and reports on who uses the roads and why, the social and economic impact of roads and road transport, and the current demand for improved infrastructure and sustainable development on the continent’s road networks.

“Finding Your Way - A Guide for Victims Following the Death or Serious Injury of a Loved one in a Road Traffic Collision”.

 

Created by PARC Road Safety Group, the guide has arisen out of the pain, hurt, lack of information and confusion of those who have suffered greatly as a result of a road traffic collision in which they lost a loved one or been injured themselves. It is written with the intention of enabling those who come after us to benefit from our experience. It is our hope that it will empower families.
