The International Road Federation (IRF) is now publishing its new quarterly journal featuring peer reviewed technical contributions by leading industry professionals. Called the IRF Examiner, this freely available publication addresses innovative road safety applications ranging from school zone safety projects in Abu Dhabi to rumble strips on rural highways.
The release of the publication has been timed to coincide with Intertraffic Amsterdam. According to IRF chairman Eng. Abdullah Al-Mogbel, “The IRF Examiner is an instrument designed to broadcast, and build on, the sum of academic and technical knowledge assembled during the highly successful 17th IRF World Meeting & Exhibition in Riyadh.”
Patrick Sankey, IRF president and CEO commented, “Global road deaths and traffic-related injuries have reached epidemic levels, causing significant personal and financial losses to society. There is little question that the systematic use of diagnosis tools and roadside treatment such as those presented in the launch edition of the IRF Examiner could have prevented many of these casualties.”
