Join us in Leipzig this week from 23-25 May when iRAP, its partners and safer roads saving lives are in the spotlight before 1400 decision-makers and 40 ministers from more than 80 countries.

Key to iRAP’s participation will be the launch of Vaccines for Roads IV, iRAP’s new Big Data Tool. The Tool will provide for the first time a health check on how safe the world’s roads are and the road attributes that matter, the projected human life and economic savings to be gained if countries meet the new UN Global Road Safety Targets, and case studies of success. The Tool unlocks insights into the world’s largest road infrastructure safety database, summarising star rating and investment plan data – over 400 million data points – based on 358,000km of roads across 54 countries covering over 700 billion vehicle kilometres of travel.

Achieving more than 75% of travel on 3-star or better roads by 2030 will save an estimated 467,000 lives every year worldwide and 100,000 million lives and serious injuries over the 20 year life of road treatments.
