European Truck Accident Causation
|Duration||from 05/2004 until 09/2006|
Only limited statistics are available regarding accidents involving trucks and even less is known about the cause of these accidents. To fill in this lack of knowledge, the European Commission and the International Road Transport Union (IRU) launched a unique scientific study, the European Truck Accident Causation (ETAC) study.
The aim of the study is to identify the main causes of accidents involving trucks. This information can be used to give guidance to policy and decision makers for future action which can contribute to the improvement of road safety.
