India fleet safety forum

The Road Safety Fund has hosted a forum in New Delhi for major companies in India concerned about fleet safety. Organised by the Fleet Forum and the Global Road Safety Partnership, the seminar brought together companies included BP-Castrol, Coca Cola, Johnson & Johnson, UPS and Vodafone. Participants shared experiences and fleet safety management practice, and explored the potential for an alliance of companies to encourage improvements in vehicle standards, training and certification of drivers, and community engagement with road safety. India is on the frontline of the global road traffic injury epidemic, with currently more than 110,000 fatalities each year. For the companies that operate large fleets on India's roads, traffic crashes and injuries are a very real and significant issue. Details of the meeting will be posted on Fleet Forum's website soon.
