18 June 2015 – Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) Conference, Brussels

Norway House, Brussels, 18 June 2015

Last year European progress on improving road safety slowed dramatically. At the 2015 Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) conference, ETSC launched its latest annual report explaining why some countries are still making progress, some stagnated, and several are going in reverse. We also highlighted what the EU and member states need to do to get progress back on track to reach the EU’s 2020 target to cut road deaths by half over ten years.

Also on the agenda was the European Commission’s long-awaited strategy on tackling serious road traffic injuries and progress being made on collecting road injury data across Europe.

Slovenia was announced as the winner of this year’s PIN Award, for a country making outstanding progress on road safety.

This year’s conference was held at Norway House, Brussels and was kindly hosted by the Norwegian Mission to the European Union.
