Safer Streets for Pedestrians: ETSC addresses European Road Safety Day

Press release - 06 May 2013

Pedestrians represent 20% of all road deaths in the EU. As many as 6,900 pedestrians were killed in the EU27 in 2009 alone; 80,800 since 2001. We are all pedestrians but we are not all safe. Big disparities exist between countries with much potential for saving lives and preventing serious injuries. The safety of walking needs special attention if public health and our environment are to be improved by encouraging these forms of active travel.
