The higher the risk of a road crash or security incident is, the longer it takes for drivers and vehicles to travel on the road, especially in hazardous or more dangerous environments. Therefore, reducing this exposure is an important aspect in improving road safety performance. It is therefore important that the journeys are planned to ensure, safe working hours are maintained and that drivers are rested to avoid tiredness and fatigue.
For every journey one should ask if the journey is actually necessary; the safest journey is the one not taken.
