Every year more than 6 million passengers travel by intercity buses to reach their homes, works or holiday destinations. Only a small part of them use seat belts – to be more specific, only 13,9 % of passengers do follow safety instructions regarding seat belts. Lack of knowledge surely is not the main factor because more than 62% of travelers do know that they must wear seat belts.

With such a worrying trend, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has encouraged and invited carriers and bus station managers to sign a “Promotion of seat belts in intercity buses memorandum”.

The biggest mistake that occurs both in our country Greece and at European level is the fact that driving is treated as an easy, simple and safe everyday habit, resulting from the conviction of the modern driver that a car accident isn’t going to happen to himself/herself. It’s statistically proven that we will be part of at least one serious car accident in our lives, due to either our own fault or to someone else’s.

Since its origins, the Abertis Foundation's priorities have been to generate and share new knowledge of road safety and to raise awareness of the need for a safe mobility among different key groups. Throughout these years, the aim of the road safety programme has been to support drivers in all the phases of their lives and in all the countries where the Group has a significant presence: Brazil, Chile, Spain, France, Argentina and Puerto Rico.

As announced this webinar addressed the work-related road safety problematic through three presentations. Jacqueline Lacroix from DVR opened the webinar with a presentation of the work-related road safety data’s and the prevention work around this problem in Germany. During the second presentation Jacqueline O’Donovan discussed her company’s high standards in terms of fleet and driver’s safety, efforts that were awarded at the 2016 PRAISE-award ceremony. As last speaker, José Guilherme fleet manager at Portugal’s postal services (CTT-Correiros) presented his “new road safety programme” rewarded at the 2017 excellence in Road safety Award.  
This webinar encountered a great success as more than 40 participants took part actively with very interesting questions and interventions. The PowerPoint presentations are available here.

Summer is coming, and with summer comes increased dangers in roads or railways. There are more children playing outside, drivers and passengers think about long-waited holidays and are prone to various distractions. Increased road and railway traffic coincides with a higher volume of traffic accidents.
