What we do

We are the European Commission’s transport department. We work to ensure European roads are as safe as possible for all users - pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

This site gives you an overview of our road safety work. It covers behaviour, vehicles and infrastructure, the 3 components making up the traffic system.

To make our roads safer, we work together with all sections of society, under the principle of "shared responsibility" laid down in the European Road Safety Charter.

Groups across society - local schools, rural associations, large multinational companies - all have a role to play.
