Risk Science Unplugged presents Just Unplug and Drive
Ninety-five Americans are killed on the road every day. Around 15 times that number are seriously injured and hospitalized. The personal and societal cost of this immense. Without innovative solutions and concerted action, this 'road toll' is estimated to climb. Leading injury prevention researchers Ray Bingham, Jean Shope and Michael Fitzharris join forces with John Viera, Director of Sustainability & Vehicle Environmental Matters at Ford, to chat with Di Bowman about the growing public health challenges posed by transport safety and what can be done to make our roads safer.
