Memorandum to the Romanian Presidency of the EU

  • January 1, 2019

In this briefing, ETSC outlines its recommendations on the key EU road safety policy dossiers to be steered by the Romanian Presidency of the European Union in the first part of 2019.

The EU published four road safety measures on 17 May 2018 as part of its so-called third mobility package. They included an overall outline of the road safety strategy for the decade to 2030; new vehicle safety standards; updated rules on road infrastructure safety management and a strategy for automated driving.

ETSC still hopes that the long-awaited impetus of the third mobility package could contribute significantly to resuming road safety improvement soon and driving progress in the next decade.
