Brake has announced the launch of its new road safety library, an online resource with free access for anyone with an interest in road safety.
Aimed at professionals working in road safety around the world, the purpose of the website is to share knowledge and best practice, to help organisations develop and deliver effective interventions to prevent deaths and injuries on roads.
Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive at Brake, said: “Road safety professionals across the world are working on a huge range of initiatives to make roads safer.
“It’s so important to share research, information and best practice so we’re learning from one another and we’re well informed about what’s likely to be the best approach in tackling different issues.”
The main section of the site will comprise a library of research, data and reports on a range of road safety topics, road safety initiatives by governments, international case studies and educational schemes from various agencies worldwide.
The road safety library replaces the road safety exchange, an online information service that was previously only available to subscribers of Brake’s road and fleet safety forums.
