Road safety is everyone's business

187 views

The first-ever European Road Safety Day, dedicated to young drivers, will be held in Brussels on 27 April 2007. The event is the European Commission's way of reminding young people that road safety is everyone's business. It is also meant to help maintain the impetus around its action programme aimed at saving 25 000 lives a year in 2010 compared to 2001, in other words, halving the 50 000 fatalities registered in 2001. The film discusses the different components of improving road safety: speed checks, checks for alcohol or drug use and wearing of safety belts, international cooperation in prosecuting offences, and the contribution of technology. It briefly develops a few specific aspects such as the electronic stability control system, blind spot mirrors on trucks, the protection of motorcyclists and the initiatives taken by the city of Cologne under the European Road Safety Charter.
