Road Safety

Travel freely and independently, but also safely

Driving a motorhome: more than just a means of travel

For many years now, motorhomes have been attracting increasing numbers of enthusiasts, and in recent times this trend has really taken off. Motorhomes offer independence while at the same time making it easy to keep a distance from other travelers. What more could you ask for? We reveal some of the keys to this way of travelling, which has now become a whole philosophy of life.

Maximum protection is essential if you are a vulnerable road user

Whether you use your bike as a means of transport or for sport, you must always follow the rules and protect yourself as much as possible. Specially during the deconfinement.

The importance of wearing a seat belt

The submarine effect

We are very aware of the importance of wearing a seat belt whenever we travel in a vehicle, but we do not realize the effects that wearing it inappropriately may have on us. Did you know that if you are wearing a loose or poorly adjusted belt during a collision, you could slide underneath and hit the steering wheel or the ground?This situation is called the submarine effect and in children it can have fatal consequencess.

On World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims we remember the families and friends of all those who died in road accidents

Victims who do not show up in the statistics

When we talk about the victims of road accidents we are referring to the people directly involved in the crash. But what about their mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, partners and friends? For us, they too are victims and on World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, held on 17 November, we want to pay tribute to them for their strength to keep going as well as to reaffirm our commitment to preventing this from happening to others.
