ETSC welcomes the new EC Communication entitled “Towards a European Road Safety Area: policy orientations on road safety 2011-2020” particularly the new target set to reduce road deaths by a further 50% by 2020. In this response in Part 1 ETSC looks at the overall structure of the Communication and then in Part 2 analyses in detail the different measures presented for action by the European Commission for the next decade. ETSC suggests areas for improvement and addition also with the aim of setting strong EU wide actions that will match the ambitions of the new target for 2020.
