4% fewer fatalities and 6% fewer serious injuries. These are the estimates that the European Commission to make eCall obligatory in all new cars. Does not sound like much? Well, with 25,300 traffic deaths in 2017, that's 1,012 families who did not have to receive the shocking devastating news. And that's 1,518 people who would have suffered less as a result of accidents.

The fact is: Almost a quarter of all accidents happen on country roads. But these are often serious. That is where 55% of all traffic victims were killed in 2017. This is why time is of the essence. But in rural areas it is often difficult to pinpoint the exact location, and so vital help is dispatched too late.


lives can be saved each year in Europe by automatic emergency call systems according to EU Commission.

Rescue teams therefore need longer time than desired to reach the scene of an accident. Every second counts. And what if no help is called at all? An experiment has shown that nine out of ten drivers pass the scene of an accident. That is a fatal fact for accident victims who cannot help themselves.

With an automatic emergency call system, help is on the way quickly and reliably: and it has been estimated by the EU study that, with it, rescue workers arrive 50% faster on rural roads and 40% in urban areas.

Thanks to the Vivatar drive system's automatic emergency call, you can count on the fastest first aid.
