Question asked by Sergio Paolo, Francesco Silvestris (PPE)
(12 February 2014)
Subject: Awareness of road safety training
The night of 10 February witnessed one more in a long line of tragic road accidents. In Milan a white van ran over a boy of just 10, who is now in a coma. The driver abandoned the van a few metres beyond the accident and ran off, but was caught by the police several hours later.
The subject of road safety training remains of primary importance in Europe, together, despite the targets so far achieved, with the objective of halving the number of road accident victims by 2010, currently standing at ‐42%.
In view of the above, can the Commission specify the following:
- Has it adopted any instruments or guidelines aimed at reinforcing road safety training in Member States?
- Does it intend to define new objectives in terms of the reduction of the number of road accident victims?
