Road safety: everybody's business

Length: 8'

Date of production: April 2007

Subject: The European Union has set itself the goal of reducing the number of road deaths by half before 2010. In other words, of saving 25,000 lives a year.
How? Various measures are foreseen. These include reinforcing controls on the three principal causes of serious accidents – excessive speed, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and not wearing a seat belt; giving increased consideration to more vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists; improving infrastructures and putting greater emphasis on technological progress such as the electronic stability control ESC etc.
Furthermore, in a spirit of shared responsibility, the European Charter on road safety is giving support to every organisation that actively engages in road safety because, at the end of the day, this is an issue which concerns all of us.
