The EU has set a target to halve road deaths by 2020. Which countries are on track, and which are playing catch-up?
At the 2017 PIN conference, ETSC will launch its latest Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) annual report looking at why some countries are still making progress on road safety and some are going in reverse.
We will also highlight two areas where action is needed to ensure future progress: work-related road safety and reducing deaths in single-vehicle collisions.
The event will also see the unveiling of this year’s PIN Award winner, presented to a PIN-programme country that has made outstanding progress on road safety.
The agenda will be uploaded soon.

"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."
"Automated vehicles are already starting to appear on Europe’s roads, but regulators are still stuck in the slow lane. It is crucial that we get a much greater understanding of what the real world safety benefits would be, and what new risks would be introduced, before these vehicles are put on sale."
"This study shows that EU and US trade negotiators would potentially be putting lives in danger by allowing vehicles approved in the US to be sold today in Europe and vice-versa. What’s needed is an open and transparent process for getting both sides up to the highest level of safety across all vehicles."
