In June each year, ETSC organises the PIN Conference to publicise the results of the ETSC PIN Annual Report and present the PIN Award to a high-level policymaker responsible for the country’s outstanding progress in road safety.
This year’s conference was held at Norway House, Brussels, kindly hosted by the Norwegian Mission to the European Union.
Among its recommendations, the ETSC report urges EU legislators to push through rules making new in-car safety technology such as autonomous emergency braking, intelligent speed assistance, alcohol interlocks mandatory.
"Independent checks, or “driving tests” for automated systems and self-driving vehicles must be a pre-requisite for their use. Technologies should be approved for use on a step-by-step basis, starting with the safest environments such as motorways."
