Munich (ots) - The ADAC clearly and unambiguously supports the improvement of road safety in Germany and will continue its commitment in the future. At the 1st National Road Safety Conference taking place today, the start of the Federal Ministry of Transport's Road Safety Program 2030, numerous fields of action will be addressed, which the ADAC and the ADAC regional clubs have always dealt with intensively. These include, among other things, the safe mobility of children and young people, the safety of cyclists, the creation and promotion of an adequate traffic climate and the opportunities that arise from automation and digitization.
ADAC Traffic President Gerhard Hillebrand: “The improvement of traffic safety has been one of the outstanding goals of the ADAC for decades - that is the core of what we do. That is why we are involved on a wide variety of levels and use our experience to enable people of all ages to be more roadworthy in their mobility. "
Among other things, the ADAC and the ADAC regional clubs have been campaigning for more than 50 years to teach children and young people how to ride a bike safely. The club also has numerous offers for lifelong learning in its portfolio. This ranges from educating parents on how to properly secure their youngest children, to a comprehensive range of driver safety training courses for all age groups and vehicle types, to feedback drives for seniors.
In addition, the ADAC is investing in its own accident research in order to better identify the potential of new safety systems. As part of its membership in the Euro NCAP consortium, the club tests new vehicles for their safety potential and is involved in the further development of new test methods and safety concepts. In addition, the ADAC tests networked and automated vehicles and is committed to industry and politics to align this future technology to more traffic safety.
The ADAC is also committed to improving the traffic climate. The club regularly promotes more consideration for all road users among each other - regardless of the means of transport used.
