On March 28, 2022, AZT released a new study on accident figures, trends, risk parameters, and counter-measures in/for bicycles and motorcycles. Two accident data in-depth studies (bicycle-motor vehicle collisions and motorcycle accidents of any kind) were run, as well as two representative surveys for bicycle users in Germany and Switzerland. Risk scores were calculated, such as bicyclists for slow electric bicycles again non-motorised pedal-bicycles (which is three times as high) or the risk of fatal head injuries in bicyclists against other traffic participants.
Aiming to inform, raise awareness and, most importantly, help drivers drop the risky habit of in-vehicle mobile phone use while driving, Road Safety Institute (R.S.I.) “Panos Mylonas” presented, on Monday, 21 March, the digital application DRIVE IN THE MOMENT during a Press Conference at Electra Palace Athens. The event was held within the framework of the 15th Panhellenic Road Safety Week (21-27 March), organised by R.S.I. “Panos Mylonas” and the Hellenic Institute of Transportation Engineers (H.I.T.E.).
