Road safety call at UN Post-2015 hearing

Co-chairs and panellists at the UN post-2015 hearings on transport
Governments at the UN have been urged to include a road safety target within the 'post-2015' framework for sustainable development. At a 'Open Working Group' hearing chaired by the UN Ambassadors of Kenya and Hungary, Saul Billingsley, Director of the Road Safety Fund, called on the international community to recognise the contribution that road safety and sustainable transport can make to delivering wider goals for health, education and economic development:

“There is a fundamental, and often fatal, disconnect when transport efficiency is calculated only according to narrow economic criteria. When it forgets or neglects the human dimension. An all too typical example is road building and rehabilitation designed to increase vehicle volume and speed, without considering the wider or long-term safety or environmental impacts. So our objective for the post-2015 agenda should be to restore the human dimension to transport policy, to design transport systems that do no harm, and to integrate transport policies with wider development objectives in a way that supports the delivery of the new sustainable development goals.”

A briefing paper for the hearings published by a number of UN agencies, including UNEP, WHO and UNECE, calls for a post-2015 target for road safety to reduce fatalities by 50% from 2010 levels by 2030. A paper prepared by the Partnership for Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) provides some detailed suggestions for how a road safety target, and the indicators to support it, could be formulated.

  2. ACCI-PREVENT SYSTEM

    Accidents happen in a spur of moment .”Most of the accidents
    happen due to wrong judgment while overtaking.

    “Overtaking” is a virgin phenomenon & will continue occurring
    eternally whether in single or bi-directional movements on roads.

    In recent past “Use of flasher indicators” has decisively helped in reducing road accidents as they caution & indicate change in the status of direction of moving vehicles.

    The need of hour is to declare the exact status of the vehicle in
    movement &also declare the “immediate next actions to be happening” irrespective of driver’s desire.

    That’s where the “ACCI-PREVENT SYSTEM” comes into picture devised solely by ARUN BANDI author of this article. The system is so conceived &designed so as to give prior intimation to co-drivers such as braking, sudden reduction of speed & sudden acceleration. The system so incorporated in the vehicle exhibit the intentions of driver, &such an intimation comes as an involuntary action from the vehicle itself &not from the driver.

    The system can be compared with the involuntary muscular system of the human body, which control the functioning of vital organs of human body &which are fundamental for survival.
    Similar approach is taken with this system. Irrespective of driver’s desire the system indicates changing speed ranges , idling, deceleration & and forward acceleration.

    All the indications are conventional combinations of STOP, LOOK & GO, the basic traffic lighting system &hence no chance of mistakes.

    The salient features of this system are :

    ö Accidents of overtaking in unidirectional as well as
    bi-directional movement will be
    minimal.

    ö Since it is irrespective of driver’s desire the co-drivers can
    safeguard themselves by knowing the status declaration of the moving vehicle constantly & can take appropriate actions.

    ö Due to constant indication of motional status of vehicle it will
    help regulating ongoing traffic & reduce pollution.


    ö Traffic in new words ,will have “TOTAL TRANSPERANCY” as everybody’s movement intentions are known to everybody.


    öBy any evaluations this will be an innovative value addition to an existing safety standard of vehicle.

    Working model of this system is available for
    display and demonstration with author.
