Highlighting the consequences of traffic accidents with crash tests, accident analyses and dealing with new mobility technologies are just some of AXA Accident Research & Prevention's exciting tasks. Find out more about our 40-year knowledge base.
6,005 RVs were sold in Switzerland in 2020, 26% more than the year before. The new AXA crash test series is dedicated to this boom in camper vans. The video shows how the dangers and accident damage involving RVs differ compared to cars and what the fatal consequences can be of overloading or unsafely loading these vehicles. You'll also find out how safe it is to travel in a convertible compared to a car with a roof and why modern camper vans are preferable to older cult models for safety reasons.
Do you sometimes exceed the speed limit? Is your dog sometimes allowed to sit in the passenger seat? Do you like to rest your feet on the dashboard during a journey? The number of Swiss who answer yes to these questions is not inconsiderable, as shown by the AXA 2021 Mobility Study carried out by AXA Accident Research & Prevention on the dangers of road traffic.
We have been aiming to reduce the number of accidents in Switzerland for decades. We have promoted innovations such as motorbike airbags and crash recorders, providing significant momentum for changes in the law too. We've been working on road safety since 1981 by carrying out our own tests and analyses. The video shows how things have developed over the last 40 years.
