In 2011, in Europe the number recorded accidents reached 1.1 million in total.
CLEPA reminds that the automotive suppliers invest € 15 Billion per year in R&D and produce by far most of the equipment that saves lives. These include, among others, systems for electronic stability control, collision warning, emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and adaptive headlights. The association supports as well the implementation of the life-saving eCall system being fitted in all new models of cars and light duty vehicles from 2015.
Jean-Marc Gales, CLEPA CEO says : “It is difficult to accept the figures associated with road deaths and injuries when effective safety technologies are available at affordable prices.”
