Today the EC has published the statistics of Road SAfety ( UN-safety) 2019
We congratulate the Eight Member States who registered their lowest fatality numbers on record in 2019: Croatia, Finland France, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Luxemburg and Sweden.
We call on Romania (96/million), Bulgaria (89/million) and Poland (77/million) who reported the highest fatality rates in 2019 to double their effforts
We need to do much more to reach Vision Zero even if Europe has the safest roads of the world
EU Road Safety: No Applaus from Victims
- 22.800 deaths are 22.800 to many.
- • The EU could lead by example on Road Safety
- need sustainable, active and safe mobility for all
EU Cities for People
Recognising the crucial role that towns and cities across Europe play in improving road safety, 38 % of road fatalities and more than 50 % of serious road injuries occur on urban roads
local authorities should help to reduce these numbers byadopting holistic measures to improve road safety
again and again vulnerable road users are too high in these numbers
47% = motorcyclist + pedestrians + cyclists
need to do more for these categories and do not forget the serious injuries with life-changing consequences (over 120 000 people in 2019).
