Charity launches international online road safety library

Brake, the road safety charity has announced the launch of its 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 library is to share research and best practice, helping organisations develop and deliver effective interventions to prevent deaths and injuries on roads.

The three main sections of the site will focus on:

  • A research library full of up to date research, data and reports on a range of road safety topics.
  • Important and innovative road safety initiatives by governments, including international case studies.
  • Education 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.

Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive at Brake, says: “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 Road Safety Library is an easy to use, free resource that professionals can use to access a broad range of information – helping them to be as effective as possible in preventing road deaths and injuries.”
