EU Receives Wake-up Call to Address Road Deaths

Press release - 30 March 2012

The provisional numbers of road deaths for 2011 the European Commission released yesterday are a tough reality check for the state of road safety in the EU, said Antonio Avenoso, ETSC Executive Director.
Yesterday's announcement came in with a stark reminder that there is no room for complacency, even after several years of good progress. I can only hope this cold shower will reinvigorate the European Commission and governments and help them get back on track to reach the EU 2020 road safety target. Since 2010 - when the European Road Safety Policy Orientations were published - we have yet to see any new legislative proposal from the Commission. We have a bold speech, we now have to translate the commitments of the Policy Orientations into concrete actions, said Mr. Avenoso.
