Man Truck & Bus shares insights on improving road safety
Speakers from Man Truck & Bus shared insights into innovative solutions and practices for road safety management in the UAE in order to support the UAE government’s 2021 road safety vision at a recent seminar held by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry. In line with the vision, the UAE government and various stakeholders such as Man are working towards an objective of reducing road deaths to 3 deaths per 100,000 population, thereby placing the UAE among the top 5 safest countries in the world according to World Health Organization rankings.
The seminar was organised as part of the Dubai Chamber, talked about of road transport governance regulations, education for transport operators / enforcement officers and enforcing mandatory vehicle specification standards for new commercial vehicle deliveries as areas which could have a huge impact on improving road safety standards.
Richard Brown said, “The implementation of safety solutions depend to a large extent on government legislation and owner / operator understanding of the investments and return on such investments by reduction in operational cost that can be achieved through safety initiatives. The target set cannot be achieved by any one group alone and there needs to be communication and collaboration with all stakeholders to ensure high safety standards on UAE roads today and in the future.”
