A Proposal for a Strategy to Reduce the Number of People Seriously Injured on EU Roads

In 2014, more than 203,500 people were seriously injured on EU roads representing a 3% increase over 2013. In most countries road fatality rates since 2001 have reduced at a faster pace than road injury rates. In this document, the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) recommends actions the EU can take to reduce injury rates. Measures explored include: curbing speed through speed limits, enforcement, and intelligent speed assistance; safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists; vehicle safety measures including pedestrian-friendly car fronts, improving occupant safety, and mandating in-vehicle safety systems; and post accident care.
