In order to enhance the safety of the occupants in motor vehicles carrying upto 8 passengers, I have now approved a Draft GSR Notification to make a minimum of 6 Airbags compulsory. #RoadSafety #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha

Not criticising a good deed, but there needs to be better education for drivers on how to respond to a vehicle #fires in road #tunnels. A 🧵

#firesafety #fireengineering #roadsafety #driving
Means of escape & access for the fire & rescue services are part of the design considerations for modern road tunnels.

For a single direction tunnel, the assumption is that drivers will stop before the fire & leave their vehicles, evacuating in the opposite direction.
It’s not a good idea to drive past the fire as smoke control systems will typically be designed to ventilate smoke in the direction of travel & protect the means of escape/firefighter access route.

Passing the fire can lead to you being trapped in hot smoke & unable to breath.

This exemplifies everything that's wrong with the licensing system. A persistent offender who is demonstrably incapable of operating dangerous machinery in public spaces is allowed to drive again, with the 'exceptional hardship' excuse.
standard.co.uk/news/uk/shane-…
#ShaneWarne & other persistent offenders should undergo psychological screening as well as a retest before he's ever allowed behind the wheel. A cycling proficiency test on roads should also be an essential part of the driving test.
Automated speed limiting tech would curb Warne's worst excesses & ensure he can never break speed limits again.
This is what the '#RoadSafety' lobby needs to address, otherwise the lives of innocent victims are worth no more than thoughts & prayers.

Está sendo votado agora o #PL3267/2019 que faz alterações no Código de Trânsito Brasileiro. O texto do substitutivo é melhor do que o PL original. Mas, ainda tem uma mudança inaceitável para a segurança no trânsito: o aumento do limite de pontos na carteira. Segue o fio.
✅CTB: limite máximo de 20 pontos na carteira por ano.

⚠️#PL3267/2019: limite máximo de 40 pontos na carteira por ano.

⚠️Substitutivo: limite máximo de 40 pontos ou 30 pontos (se cometer 1 infração gravíssima) ou 20 pontos (se cometer 2+ infrações gravíssimas) por ano.
Está comprovado que um sistema de pontuação rígido muda o comportamento de motoristas e contribui para a queda das mortes no trânsito, reduzindo em 11%-40% o cometimento de infrações e consequente redução de 15%-34% de mortes no trânsito.

New study by @RachelAldred and colleagues drawing on four official data sets for England for 2005-15, analyses the risks posed to other road users from bicycles, cars and taxis, vans, buses, lorries and motorbikes per billion vehicle kilometres travelled.

mrc-epid.cam.ac.uk/blog/men-more-…
The researchers found cars and taxis were associated with two-thirds of fatalities to other road users, but lorries were associated with more than five times as many deaths for each km driven, with a similarly high death toll for buses.

#RoadSafety
At the other end of the scale, cycling is relatively safe for others: it was associated with fewer deaths to other parties per km ridden than all the other types of transport, with just one other party death per billion km cycled.
