Safe through the moped season: The right helmet can prevent serious head injuries
Safe through the moped season: The right helmet can prevent serious head injuries
Joint investigations by researchers from Graz University of Technology and the AMTC show that the risk of serious head injuries increases when an already damaged helmet or a wrong helmet is worn. Additional images for download can be found at the end of the message In Austria, more than 4,100 moped riders are injured in road accidents every year - including many young people.

Nitrogen Oxides Emissions: Traffic Dramatically Underestimated as Major Polluter
Nitrogen Oxides Emissions: Traffic Dramatically Underestimated as Major Polluter
Traffic contributes more to nitrogen oxide emissions in Europe than previously thought. This is the result of a current study carried out by scientists from the University of Innsbruck. The research team headed by Thomas Karl shows that even newer air quality models underestimate traffic related nitrogen oxide pollution by up to a factor of 4.
