The FIA, Federation Internationale de l’Automobile officially unveiled a stand at the 2010 Mondial de l’Automobile Paris today. The stand features the FIA, FIA Foundation,eSafetyAware!, 2009 Formula One World Champion Jenson Button’s car and a crash tested consumer vehicle.

The President of the FIA, Jean Todt, was joined at the inaugural launch of the FIA stand by influential manufacturers. Jean Todt spoke about the importance of improving safety for all road users and the necessity to continue research and development into onboard vehicle safety technology to reduce fatalities.

Jean Todt stated: “All of us involved in motoring are aware of the current tragic road death figures. Road crashes already kill on a scale of Malaria or Tuberculosis and they are forecast to increase dramatically unless action is taken. Last year alone 1.3 million people were killed and 50 million injured. By 2030, the projected number of deaths on the world’s roads will be roughly double the current level. The FIA is involved in two major initiatives, the eSafetyAware! campaign and the Decade of Action for Road Safety, both of which we hope will lead to a marked decline in road fatalities.

As President of eSafetyAware! I am pleased that so many vehicle manufacturers and safety technology companies are partners in eSafety Aware!. This involvement has lead to advances in European road safety, including improvements in road and car design and driver education. However, it is essential that there is increased public awareness of eSafety technologies which have the potential to prevent many accidents and save many lives. From 2012 Electronic Stability Control will be mandatory for all new cars in the EU which will avoid many injuries and save lives.

The United Nations proclaimed 2011-2020 a Decade of Action for Road Safety. It the FIA’s objective to save 5 million lives and to prevent 50 million people from being injured on the world’s roads over the next ten years. We are calling on all of those involved in the automobile industry to work with us in the research and development of life saving vehicle technologies, and the promotion of the Decade of Action for Road Safety. I am sure that by working together we can take a major leap forward towards achieving the goal of creating safer mobility for all and making roads safer.”
