Final EU Approval for New Road Safety Legislation

Press release - 29 September 2011

ETSC strongly welcomes the final approval by the Council of Ministers, which comes as the last step in the adoption process of the Cross-Border Enforcement Directive. The text approved by the EU ministers is a compromise that was hammered out after negotiations with the European Parliament before the summer break.

Member states will need to implement the provisions of the Directive within two years. The Directive plugs an important gap in the enforcement of traffic laws across the EU and we believe it will make a good contribution towards halving road deaths during the 2011-2020 decade, said Antonio Avenoso, ETSC Executive Director.
