STA in Action

15 Dec ‘Safe and secure?’ an article by Mr. Patrick Asimus in anticipation to the forthcoming French presidential elections

Every year road accidents cause more than 3,600 fatalities and over 5,000 injuries in France. Furthermore in 2016 road fatalities increased by 3.1 per cent compared to the previous year. Notwithstanding, this situation is more or less the same across Europe so the time has come to define a new vision on road safety that goes beyond the mere enforcement of a repressive arsenal that is proving ineffective. But what are the alternatives on the table?

In this article, entitled ‘Safe and secure?’, Mr. Patrick Asimus, President of MOVEA SAS and member of STA’s TC 2 (Smart Safety & Security), discusses the current situation of French road infrastructure and provides a review of road safety proposals in view of the forthcoming presidential elections.
