Press conference by Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC, on the road safety statistics for 2013 and the EU Road safety action programme 2011–2020

Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, gave a press conference following the publication by the EC, which shows that 2013, for the second year in a row, saw an impressive decrease in the number of people killed on Europe's roads. According to preliminary figures, the number of road fatalities has decreased by 8% compared to 2012, following the 9% decrease between 2011 and 2012. This means that the EU is now in a good position for reaching the strategic target of halving road deaths between 2010 and 2020. Road safety is one of the big success stories of Europe. The 17% decrease since 2010 means that some 9000 lives have been saved.
The European Road Safety Action Programme 2011–2020 sets out challenging plans to reduce the number of road deaths on Europe's roads by half in 10 years. It contains ambitious proposals focusing on making improvements to vehicles, infrastructure and road users' behaviour. From 2015, a strategic target for the reduction of serious road traffic injuries is expected to be adopted.
