Sharing Knowledge Across Borders – IRF Unveils IRF Examiner
March 25, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AMSTERDAM — The International Road Federation published today Volume 1 of the IRF Examiner, a freely available periodical journal featuring peer-reviewed technical papers by leading industry professionals. The Spring 2014 edition of the IRF Examiner addresses life-saving road safety applications ranging from school zone safety projects in Abu Dhabi to rumble strips on rural highways. The IRF released the publication at Intertraffic Amsterdam, one of the industry’s largest international trade fair.
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. It is both a useful resource for our industry and a tangible illustration of the IRF’s commitment to better roads for a better world.”
IRF President & CEO C. Patrick Sankey noted, “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 diagnostic tools and roadside treatment such as those presented in the launch edition of the IRF Examiner could prevent many such casualties.”
The IRF Examiner is available to all for download from www.IRF.global and at Intertraffic booth 09-109 from March 25-28. For information on how to contribute to the IRF Examiner, please contact senmon@IRF.global
