Daytime Running Lights
The Commission has been considering how best to implement day-time-running-lights (DRL) ever since the recommendation in the Second Road Safety Communication gave DRL's potential as a 5% reduction in road deaths.
However some road users’ associations fear that DRL on cars would:
- mask the conspicuity of motor cyclists, even if they had DRL themselves;
- daze and confuse pedestrians, particularly the aged.
A study was therefore commissioned in late 2002 so as to gain definitive evidence one way or the other on the costs and benefits of DRL's implementation. The study has been done by the Dutch SWOV and TNO and the Norwegian Institute for Traffic Studies, a renowned institution on cost-benefit analysis that provided the evidence for the Norwegian government's decision to require the use of DRL.
The Integrated Project DRUID (Driving under the Influence of Drugs, Alcohol and Medicines) deals with the scourge of drink-driving and is going to find answers to questions concerning the use of drugs or medicines that affect people’s ability to drive safely. DRUID will bring together the most experienced organisations and researchers throughout Europe, involving more than 20 European countries. The aim is to gain new insights to the real degree of impairment caused by psychoactive drugs and their actual impact on road safety. All in all this Integrated Project will fill the gaps of knowledge and provide a solid base to generate harmonised, EU-wide regulations for driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs and medicine.
