Talk Before It Is Too Late
Road Safety announced that in January 2014, 238 people died in road accidents in France , against 239 a year earlier, representing a relatively stable (-0.5%) rate. The association of 40 million motorists challenged this figure. In fact, he noted that Road Safety announced 271 deaths for the month of January 2013. The difference is explained by the fact that road safety is based on provisional figures to present his monthly report, and its software statistical calculation overstated the final number of deaths in January 2013. However, 40 million motorists denounced a “statistical approximation,” wondering how road safety can compare final figures for January 2013 to provisional data for January 2014 (which will be consolidated in June).

Will you be in the numbers next week ?
Ask yourself this painful issue as many times as it takes because behind each number there is a real person: Your father, your brother, your child, your spouse, your neighbor or even a stranger, and the stranger is a real person!
Each time you use the car on the road, you can help reduce these numbers.
Authoritative driving is a step towards better road safety.
You can change everything, it is you who are the master of your destiny!
And I sincerely believe that we should look at such an image being aware that tomorrow might be us!
