What is the link between French motorcycle star Christian Sarron and Wim van de Camp, member of the European Parliament? The clue is the yellow badge in the first of the two pictures above.
It is the symbol of the Decade of Action for Road Safety launched back in 2011.
FIM supports this work because today nearly 1.3 million people die on the roads every year. 90% of this takes place in middle and low income countries.
Alongside our friends in car racing, and with others, we are working to use our knowledge from motorcycle racing to make the roads a safer place for everyone.
