Autoliv has become part of Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a coalition of private sector companies working to prevent traffic crashes, injuries and deaths on roadways. Autoliv will be a member of the Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety, that uses peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing to help smaller fleet operators create safety cultures and reduce risk.

According to UN data, an estimated 1.35 million people are killed every year in road crashes and up to 50 million more are injured. This costs the global economy $1.85 trillion. TSR is advancing road safety with actionable campaigns and programmes, including safer fleets, safer cities, and data and digital innovation. Companies like Autoliv are joining the cause because of their commitment to road safety improvement and technology to prevent crashes, injuries and deaths.

“Together for Safer Roads recognises that safer roads are a shared responsibility and we are happy to join their network of companies actively working to make roads safer for all people and to jointly research new safety innovations,” said Cecilia Sunnevång, Autoliv vice president of Research.

Autoliv will specifically participate in TSR’s Safer Cities micromobility risk management project and lead safety research into the growing e-scooter and micromobility market segment. It will participate in TSR’s Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety that is focused on supporting fleets with access to peer advisors, training experiences and organisational development to establish a safety culture and create positive change.

“Focusing on how we can make tomorrow’s mobility safe and pursuing a common way of defining safe driving and how driving data can be used to promote this, sets the agenda for leading companies to collaborate in this space,” said Christoffer Malm, Autoliv director of Digital Business and Mobility.

“Traffic deaths continue to be an epidemic and working with partners like Autoliv is a crucial component in our effort to keep all road users safer,” said David Braunstein, president, Together for Safer Roads. “Autoliv’s knowledge and data-driven expertise in creating safety systems will provide a positive impact toward reducing the curve on road traffic collisions so they are no longer one of the leading causes of death and injuries worldwide.”
