Placing people and the planet at the heart of vehicle modernisation
The Modern Wheels campaign embraces unstoppable developments in vehicle technology, that can save both lives and the planet, and calls on developments to be implemented in line with Brake's vision of safe, sustainable, healthy and fair transport. Brake supports efforts to:
1 'Raise the bar' of safety regulation on new vehicles, to prevent crashes and mitigate their outcomes.
2 Support and speed up efforts by government and infrastructure providers to enable purchase and convenient refuelling of ultra-low emission vehicles.
3 Increase safe and green vehicle purchasing by the public.
4 Increase safe and green vehicle purchasing choices by companies and organisations operating fleets.
5 Ensure implementation of automated, connected vehicles within the UK in ways that are safe, sustainable, healthy and fair for all. This includes ensuring fair space and segregated routes for people on foot and bicycles.
