EURORAP WINS AUTOCAR 2003 AWARD FOR ROAD SAFETY
The European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) has received the Autocar magazine 2003 award for Road Safety. The accolade recognised EuroRAP’s objectives to raise the profile and awareness of the contribution of road design to the safety of road users, and its strategy to provide this information as a benchmark by which local and national authorities can track their overall performance.
To date EuroRAP has released results for Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and data for part of Italy, showing the distribution of the risk of fatal and serious accidents across the road network.
The Autocar awards are among the most prestigious in the industry and provide the UK launch for the European Car of the Year. Runners-up to EuroRAP in the safety category were Renault, for their continued success in the EuroNCAP results, and BMW, for their adaptive LED brake lights.
