Minister backs advanced e-safety systems in cars.

11 September 2009

Speaking at the e-Safety Challenge event in Rome earlier this week, Transport Minister Paul Clarke MP said: ‘Advanced Driver Assistance Systems can play an important part in helping drivers use the roads more safely. I am also keen to see how these technologies could also benefit vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.'

Announcing further UK Government support for the e-SafetyAware programme in which RoadSafe is a partner he added: ‘Of course some of the advanced safety technologies that are now available stem from systems originally developed for motorsport – many of them in the UK, which is at the forefront of motorsport research and technological development. It is entirely appropriate therefore that I can announce that we have agreed to support eSafetyAware in holding the 2010 e-Safety Challenge in the UK.’
