Road Safety Week

Posted on: 19 May 2014     Tags:

This week marks Road Safety Week, which helps raise awareness of the terrible carnage on New Zealand roads. The theme for 2014 is “Tune in to road safety’. When using roads, we all need to tune in to road safety and give it our full attention - particularly if we're at the wheel, but also when we're cycling, walking, skating, running, you name it - to keep ourselves and others safe. Abley has made a significant contribution in the road safety space over the years with the various project work we have completed. More recently we have developed story maps which show the top 20 high risk intersections in New Zealand and speed camera locations in New Zealand . For information on the development of story maps, please contact Kurt Janssen .
