Škoda Auto launches road safety survey

1/15/2008
The project objective is to map out the behaviour of vehicles in real road accidents and make use of the survey findings to further enhance the already existing cars, as well as vehicles whose development is underway.

In cooperation with Czech police, the country's National Fire Department and other agencies Ministries of the Interior, Transport and Health, Škoda Auto is launching a new road safety survey. A dedicated survey team made up of Škoda Auto's Technical Development people and experts from a number of other institutions is going to analyse real road accidents involving mass-produced Škoda vehicles.

The findings of the survey are going to be used to further improve the active and passive safety of the existing cars, as well as vehicles whose development is underway. The project implementation is based on vast experience and methods employed by VW and Audi, i.e., companies that have been conducting similar surveys on German roads for several years now.  » more
