Sun lenses on the Road // Be Safe with Essilor Sun Solution & FIA
A three-year partnership has been formed between Essilor and the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile. The goal is to promote road safety. It is intended to raise awareness about the importance of having a good vision for road safety. Recent statistics show that 3.500 people die every day in traffic accidents. 46% of those killed on roads around the world are pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, or passengers of motorbikes. 10 to 12% are believed to be caused by vision problems. Good vision is essential for road safety. It is the most important sense of five when it comes to making decisions behind the wheel.
The 12 Golden Rules are FIA’s guidelines for road users. These tips are intended to increase road safety. These tips remind everyone that they are not the only ones on the road, no matter what mode of transport they use. They must remember that all road users and passengers are important.
