50% of the traffic – 90% of the death tolls

The developing countries account for 50% of the world’s road traffic, but 90% of traffic fatalities. With increasing numbers of vehicles, traffic will soon become the fifth most common cause of death, ahead of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.

These countries are now facing the same challenges as Europe and the USA did in the 1960s. As one of the world’s leading vehicle inspection and emission control providers, Opus Group plays an active role in this global challenge. By providing know-how, equipment and complete vehicle inspection programs, we help countries like Pakistan, Peru and others to change this trend.

The collision-free car

Active safety systems, which should ensure that accidents never occur, are becoming more and more advanced and the driverless car is no longer science fiction. But what if these systems don’t function correctly? Hi-tech vehicle inspection will therefore become increasingly important, and Opus is already among the leading companies within this area.
