Otto cartoni animati sulla sicurezza stradale per evidenziare le principali situazioni di rischio generate da comportamenti sbagliati alla guida. Otto storie di ordinaria insicurezza raccontate con un mezzo, il cartone animato, che diverte, ma che fa riflettere e sollecita a rispettare le regole al volante e sulla strada. "Sicurstory" è il frutto di un progetto sulla sicurezza stradale promosso dalla Fondazione Unipolis/Sicurstrada per accrescere l'attenzione verso il tema della sicurezza su strada. La realizzazione dei cartoni animati è frutto di un concorso realizzato nel 2010 rivolto ai dipendenti, agli agenti e al personale delle agenzie delle Società del Gruppo Unipol. Il progetto si è sviluppato come concorso letterario finalizzato a riflettere e far riflettere sulla sicurezza stradale: le otto storie selezionate, sono state utilizzate per la realizzazione di cartoni animati volti a promuovere comportamenti virtuosi alla guida. All'iniziativa ha collaborato Giordano Biserni, presidente di ASAPS -- Associazione Sostenitori Amici Polizia Stradale.

Hungarian Scientific Association for Transport (KTE) made a survey at a popular Hungarian summer festival, which highlighted the risk of using a mobile phone while driving. Nowadays not only the voice calls, but the written messages are growing risk factors too. 1/5 of the respondents usually send SMS, e-mails and other kind of messages while driving. The low-budget risk prevention video clip was made in 2004 by KTE and it turned out a success.

A recent assessment of the burden of disease from noise by the World Health Organization (WHO) confirms that traffic noise is a major cause of environmental health problems. In cities, and near main roads and railways, traffic is the major contributor to noise levels. At present, some 210 million Europeans are regularly exposed to road traffic noise levels exceeding 55 decibels and 35 million are exposed to these levels of rail noise, pursuant to recent studies. Health impacts frequently occur above this level, according to the WHO and the EU.

This 92 page paper highlights challenges and opportunities in road safety research in Europe, describing the contribution from the European Community’s Research Framework Programmes as well as from other research activities at European level and their impact on road transport safety sector. Consideration is also given to new activities that could or should be undertaken in support of increased safety on our roads and for efficient policy implementation.
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.
The Global status report on road safety 2013 presents information on road safety from 182 countries, accounting for almost 99% of the world’s population. The report indicates that worldwide the total number of road traffic deaths remains unacceptably high at 1.24 million per year.
