32 Dutch organisations call for increased enforcement on road safety

  • April 6, 2017

Road safety experts including the Institute for Road Safety Research (SWOV), drivers groups, insurers, cities and other stakeholders including the public prosecutor’s office have published a road safety manifesto for The Netherlands in response to poor recent performance by the country in cutting road deaths.

Road deaths in The Netherlands increased by 9% in 2015, and declined by just 3% over the five years 2010-15.

The coalition is calling for better enforcement of drink driving offences, improvements to infrastructure – especially for cyclists, 30km limits as well as action on distraction and speeding. The groups say the social costs of traffic collisions in The Netherlands is EUR 14 billion per year.
