A #StopTheCrash Partnership event has taken place in Indonesia for the first time, with live demonstrations of crash avoidance technologies in support of the United Nations (UN) 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 had a special focus on the life-saving benefits of Electronic Stability Control, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) for motorcycles and Blind Spot Detection.

“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,” said David Ward, President of Global NCAP and Chairman of the #StopTheCrash Partnership. “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.”

The UN has developed international standards to help encourage countries around the world to mandate the life-saving technologies promoted by the #StopTheCrash Partnership. Global NCAP and the #StopTheCrash Partnership encourages the Indonesian government to take a leadership role for the Asian continent in the fitment of vehicle safety technology.
