#StopTheCrash Campaign for car and motorcycle safety launches in Indonesia

20 November 2019

For the first time in Indonesia, the #StopTheCrash Partnership hosts live demonstrations of crash avoidance technologies in support of the United Nations Global Goals and the Decade of Action for Road Safety.

Launched at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park in Bali with the support of ASEAN NCAP and the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research , the #StopTheCrash Partnership event has a special focus on the life saving benefits of Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) for motorcycles and Blind Spot Detection (BSD).

With motorcycle crashes being of major concern in the region, the event will especially highlight the importance of motorcycle ABS and blind spot detection in curbing motorcycle related trauma and encourage legislative action in making the #StopTheCrash technologies more readily available for consumers in the region.

The technologies promoted by #StopTheCrash have the potential to save thousands of lives every year and the UN has developed international standards to help encourage countries around the world to mandate these life saving technologies. Many countries have taken a lead in adopting such legislation to protect drivers, riders and other vulnerable road users. Global NCAP and the Stop the Crash Partnership encourages the Indonesian government to take a leadership role for the Asian continent in the fitment of vehicle safety technology.

David Ward, President of Global NCAP and Chairman of the Stop The Crash Partnership said: “For the first time we’re bringing our Stop the Crash campaign to Indonesia. Hosted in partnership with ASEAN NCAP and MIROS our demonstration event will show how life saving crash avoidance technologies such as ESC and AEB work in practice. We will be putting a special focus on technologies that help protect motorcycle riders, systems like Blind Spot warnings for drivers and ABS for riders. These are especially important safety systems in Indonesia and throughout the ASEAN region, where motorcycle and moped riders are disproportionately represented in road traffic crashes.”
