ACAFA “Village of Responsible Mobility” launched in Alsace

With the FIA World Rally Championship taking place in Alsace on 29th September to 2nd October 2011, the French Automobile and Touring Club ACAFA (L’Automobile Club, Association Française des Automobilistes) set up a ‘Village of Responsible Mobility’ to mark the occasion.

Working in cooperation with La Fédération Française du Sport Automobile (FFSA), ACAFA set up the village with the goal of increasing awareness, not only among rally fans but also the ordinary public, on issues such as road safety, eco-driving, new mobility trends and new green technologies.
In order to get the message across, ACAFA made available driving simulators, glasses which simulate drunkenness and a range of other games for spectators to test. And while the event was supposed to be fun, it had a serious goal – the promotion of responsible behaviour on the road.

ACAFA was supported in its work by partners such as Michelin and Citroën, and involved both local and national road safety authorities in the event. The process of getting infrastructure in place for an eventual transition to electric vehicles and new energy sources will involve all stakeholders according to the Club.

ACAFA President Didier Bollecker said: “As part of the FIA Action for Road Safety Campaign, the Village of Responsible Mobility aims to raise awareness on mobility issues like road safety, future mobility trends, and the protection of the environment – these are issues which affect us all.”

The FIA Action for Road Safety campaign supports the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, an initiative that aims to save five million lives in the next 10 years.

The ACAFA ‘Village of Responsible Mobility’ was open from 29th September - 2nd October.
