Road safety is a top priority for IRU and its members and partners. At a meeting of the European Transport Safety Council focusing on work-related road safety, IRU revealed its activities and initiatives in helping to deliver even safer taxis.
IRU continues to actively promote road safety in the sector. The Taxi Anytime, Anywhere campaign highlights safety as a key element. This is supported by a number of driver safety checklists and IRU Academy’s Taxi Programme that focuses on equipping drivers with additional skills and knowledge. Similarly, membership of IRU’s UpTop global taxi network requires partners to have excellent existing safety records and ongoing mechanisms to monitor and improve road safety performance.
