Many people believe that the ultimate road safety feature that we will see is that of automation. The United Kingdom has already started trialing this new technology and in this latest entry into the Brake blog, Professor Nick Reed looks at how automation is currently being developed and the potential pitfalls it may face.
The Brake Blog
In July of 2016, Brake launched the Roads to Justice campaign. This brought together many friends and families who have lost loved ones to a criminal driver but felt that they never got the justice that was deserved. One woman who blogged about her experience was Vivienne Craske. In the latest Brake blog she provides an insight into continually striving to get justice for the loss of her brother.
Autonomous cars and similar new technologies are on the brink of changing our world. Much debate has focussed on their potential benefits and the social issues they may cause. However, are the new technologies being introduced too quickly? In the latest Brake blog; Jeremy Rochfort, National Sales Manager at Autoglass®, says many fleets are struggling to adapt to the rapid rate of change and emphasises the need for safety to be maintained as the main priority.
When it comes to road safety, there seems to be a lack of awareness from the general public and a sense of passing the buck when it comes to responsibility on our roads. In the latest Brake blog, Steven Crouch from Citygate ask if the people who use our roads really know about the true causes of road crashes?
One of the most important aspects of staying safe on the road, is having a road worthy safe vehicle which is properly equipped. One area that some drivers fail on is having the right tyres for the job. In the latest Brake blog, Lewis Baker, who writes for traders-insurance.com, advises us all how to be road safe when in comes to looking after our tyres.
