Your safety advantage for mobility progress

Mobility is a tremendous asset. Regardless of whether it is the transport of individuals or goods, it will not work without mobility. Incidents often lead to high costs and far worse even human suffering. Major incidents are often caused by accidents. The nature of accidents is as varied as the types of mobility. Road traffic in particular is very hazardous with its different participants. The same road area is used from pedestrians to HGVs. Conflicts, which are encountered by a number of measures, are therefore pre-programmed. The number of road traffic accidents has decreased slightly over the years thanks to infrastructure measures, improved vehicles and not least also extensive training. This should be recorded as a huge success in light of the significantly increased number of vehicles and enhanced driving performance. The clear decrease in the number of deaths caused by road accidents over the last few years is a sign of successful road safety work. However, there is still a huge need for more action.

 

Examples from DEKRA's accident research services:

  • Statistical analysis of accident figures in Germany and Europe
  • In-depth analysis of traffic accident causes
  • Deduction of opportunities for improvement in vehicle engineering, infrastructure, driver training and rescue measures
  • Investigation of pre-crash phases to support development and deduction of potential benefits of driver assistant systems
