How Technology Can Help Road Safety In Cambodia

Cambodia / Bosch country head on traffic accidents and engineering solutions
By: Robin Spiess - Posted on: January 10, 2019 | Business

Traffic accidents are all too common across Southeast Asia, where approximately 1.35 million people die each year from road crashes. To shed some light on how automotive manufacturers and marketers can help minimise accidents in the region, Southeast Asia Globe sits down with Phirum Hay, country head of Bosch in Cambodia, to discuss the importance of the Kingdom’s adoption of new technologies and modern safety systems in its cars
Bosch country head Phirum Hay says that every road accident death poses a threat to the social and economic progress of countries

Can you describe the current road safety challenges Cambodia faces? Are these similar to challenges faced by other Southeast Asian countries?
[Southeast Asia as a region] comes in second globally in terms of road fatalities. Last year in Cambodia, 1,761 people died in traffic accidents and another 4,771 people were injured. Every death poses an extensive threat to the social and economic progress of the country. The key behavioural factors that lead to road accidents in Cambodia as well as countries in Southeast Asia unfortunately still include speeding, drink-driving, failure to uphold safety vehicle standards and disuse of motorcycle helmets, seatbelts and child restraints.

How can these challenges be best addressed, and in what ways is Bosch contributing to solving these problems in Cambodia?
Bosch aims to make Cambodian roads safer by upholding the safety standards of vehicles and installing safer technologies, like our anti-lock braking systems (ABS), which are our own invention. Now, 74% of our new vehicles are equipped with ABS, which has helped prevent over 260,000 fatalities in Europe alone, according to a 2014 study. Since 2014, these safety technologies have been compulsory in newly registered vehicles in Europe.

What load of tosh.
ABS is on most cars in Cambodia but they either are not working or won’t help anyway.

It’s not about technology it’s changing the idiocy that is prevalent in Cambodia on the roads, from motos to trucks. Utterly irrelevant.

How Technology Can Help Road Safety In Cambodia.

The technology they are already using is not working . When motorists understand what red and green lights are, then it will be time to use more advanced technology.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Exactly, If you're pissed out of your mind the efficiency of your breaking system is largely irrelevant! :lol:

However if they made ignition interlocks mandatory on all vehicles that would be interesting :D
