Car, Van and Vehicle Blog
Cars and vans are the most popular mode of transport in the world. With over 1.446 billion of them buzzing around the Earth.
Every year, more than 1.35 million people are killed on the worlds roads and shockingly road accidents are the number 1 killer of people aged 5 - 29 and are the 8th highest cause of death of ALL ages.
Road crashes cause between 20 - 50 million non-fatal injuries around the world, every year. At the highest estimate, this is just below the population of England.
The Lancet, a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal, estimates that the world is set to lose $1.8 trillion to road accidents between 2015 and 2030. That's 1,800,000,000,000 - the population of London x two hundred thousand.
Like any piece of machinery, cars and vans need regularly inspected and maintained in good working order. Don't gamble with your safety, check your tyres, screen wash and your lights. Don't speed and stay safe!
