‘Can we expect a driver to know how a guardrail works? Personally, I don’t think a driver is interested in knowing how a guardrail works. I believe the best impact we can have on improving road safety is to talk to the decision makers and show them the solutions to prevent dangerous situations and serious consequences. The road user does not care about the solutions; he/she just wants us to make sure, that the road is safe and fix what must be fixed. Only in case of an accident he might be interested to know more about the safety systems.’
‘The future of mobility? I strongly believe in green mobility and digitization of the roads. With regards to green mobility, I am a big fan of the bicycle. I am happy to see a lot of improvements are being made for instance in making the infrastructure safe for cyclists. Governments have difficulties changing existing infrastructure. You see, they can’t take down the buildings, so they need to take some space from car drivers in the benefit of the bicycle. The Raily fence would in this case be an efficient way to divide the cyclists from the car drivers due to his high resistance against impacts. Electric and hybrid vehicles with assisted driving system will be booming in 2021. Hopefully, car drivers decide to travel by bicycle instead. Luckily, this is already changing: more people are using the bicycle instead of a car or a bus. Electric vehicles will be booming in 2021.
