The Vinci Code

A major safety awareness campaign has been carried out in France by Fondation Vinci Autoroutes, a Supporter of the Decade of Action. The foundation, established by the French toll road operator, distributed thousands of leaflets , provided advice and conducted research with HGV truckers at reststops on autoroutes. The campaign 'Big Trucks, Big Responsibilities', highlighting safe driving advice to truckers, was managed in partnership with the traffic police. The leaflets all featured the Decade 'Tag' symbol. As well as keeping European truckers safe, Fondation Vinci Autoroutes is contributing to the global road safety effort - its donation will be deployed as part of the Road Safety Fund's Small Grants Programme enabling capacity development in middle and low income countries.
