GeneSys Sends a Clear Road Safety Signal: Donation for the Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association of Offenburg/Ortenau Instead of Sending Gifts

Instead of sending gifts this year, GeneSys Elektronik GmbH is sending a clear signal for greater road safety by supporting the Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association of Offenburg’s Ortenau district. The donation of 5,000 euros is aimed at maintaining the local infrastructure at the road safety training center, thereby making a tangible contribution to improving road safety. The association has a particularly important overarching objective: Even at elementary school age, children need to learn how to safely navigate roads and traffic independently.

The generous donation is a clear commitment by GeneSys to make a tangible contribution to improving road safety in the region. The funds will now be used by the Offenburg/Ortenau Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association to maintain the training area and service the traffic lights. At the Junior Traffic Training Center at the airfield in Offenburg children of elementary school age can now be better prepared for real-life traffic scenarios and learn the correct behavior at an early age.

Since the late 1990s, GeneSys has focused on developing state-of-the-art measurement technology for automakers for the purpose of improving safety for all road users. The intuitive measurement technology provided by GeneSys is an essential tool for test engineers worldwide in their efforts to improve advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Particularly vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as cyclists and pedestrians, receive special attention. Protecting these groups is a top priority and harmonizes with Vision Zero approach to road safety management, which aims to prevent accidents and injuries in order to achieve the ambitious objective of zero road deaths and serious injuries.

Bertold Huber, founder and CEO of GeneSys, emphasizes the importance of this commitment: “Instead of giving material gifts, we took a conscious decision to make a donation that will have a direct positive impact on the safety of our community, especially for children. It is very important to us that particularly vulnerable road users are able to navigate the roads safely.”

The Offenburg/Ortenau Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association has been passionately committed to road safety for many years. Ortenau’s local Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association takes a holistic approach to sustainably improving road safety in the region. Establishing this permanent Junior Traffic Training Center at the airfield in Offenburg is a step in this direction, not only by ensuring the safety of children through preventative measures, but also by actively promoting a sense of responsibility on the roads. The Junior Traffic Training Center offers practical training which concludes with a final cycling test, which takes place as a preventative measure at the Offenburg police headquarters. The association’s aim is to raise awareness of how to safely navigate road traffic at an early age and to strengthen children’s traffic skills.

The first chairman of the association, Günter Heim, expressed his delight at the support and emphasized the importance of donations for charitable work. “This donation enables us to intensify our early road safety education programs and implement targeted measures for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable groups.”

With this campaign, GeneSys not only wishes to support the Offenburg/Ortenau Road Traffic Accident Prevention Association, but also inspire other companies to support charitable initiatives in the field of road safety. Investing in the safety of our roads is a collective step towards an accident-free future.
