"ETSC welcomes the publication of the Action Plan for the European automotive industry," said Antonio Avenoso, ETSC Executive Director.

In order to significantly improve safety on EU roads and to reach the EU target of no more than 15,500 road deaths, the cars driven in the EU must become safer. "ETSC welcomes the Commission's stated ambition to promote eCall systems. Moreover, The CARS2020 Action Plan identifies intelligent speed management devices and seatbelt reminders, a particularly positive development. We urge the European Commission to follow up the Action Plan with the appropriate legislative proposals for the full-scale deployment of these life-saving technologies," said Mr. Avenoso.
