BRUSSELS – The Belgian Institute for Road Safety, known by its French acronym IBSR, has launched a new public awareness campaign on road safety.
The initiative, announced on Flemish television over the weekend by Belgian federal mobility minister Renaat Landuyt, invites individuals concerned about road safety to express their views via a website.
Every year more than 1 million people are killed on Belgian roads, while about 8,000 are seriously injured.
The ISBR argues that every injury and death is one too many, and the purpose of the campaign is to coordinate as many initiatives as possible aimed at making Belgium’s roads saer.
