Safety in transport, there is still a lot to do!
Accidents happen on European roads every day, which unfortunately also means that there are victims. Just under a quarter of fatal accidents involve trucks or vans, according to figures from official authorities investigating road safety (1). This can often be blamed on the other road users, but in about 3 out of 10 cases the cause lies with the transporting party. Driver fatigue or using their smartphone while driving is often cited as the cause, but technical calamities such as a blowout also play a role of course.
