Autoliv, a leader in vehicle safety systems, announced that it has joined Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a coalition of leading private sector companies dedicated to preventing traffic crashes, injuries and deaths on roadways around the world. Specifically, Autoliv will be an integral member of the coalition’s Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety, a TSR program that uses peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing to help smaller fleet operators create safety cultures and reduce risk.

According to UN data, an estimated 1.35 million people are killed every year in road crashes and up to 50 million more are injured. This costs the global economy $1.85 trillion. TSR is advancing road safety with actionable campaigns and programs, including safer fleets, safer cities, and data and digital innovation. Forward-thinking companies like Autoliv are joining the cause because of their actionable commitment to road safety improvement and technology to prevent crashes, injuries and deaths.

Autoliv will specifically participate in TSR’s Safer Cities micromobility risk management project and lead safety research into the growing e-scooter and micromobility market segment and they will participate in TSR’s Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety that is focused on supporting fleets with access to peer advisors, training experiences and organizational development to establish a safety culture and create positive change.
