The human factor - Paying attention is the best safety strategy

Whatever mode of transport you use, road accidents generally have multiple causes – above all, excessive speed, inattention or alcohol. The person at the wheel is the biggest risk factor, which is why our attention must also be focused on people if we want to make our roads even safer. This begins with considering whether a person is even fit or proficient enough to drive at all, but it also involves other aspects such as proneness to distraction or daytime drowsiness, voluntary health checks for elderly road users and driver training.
