- Roads The EU is aiming to facilitate the flow of goods and people between EU countries by linking the national road networks. It will eventually be responsible for the safety audits of the new network.
- Road Tunnels EU minimum safety requirements for tunnels ensure that they are adequate for the volume of traffic and have emergency exits to prevent them from becoming death traps in an accident.
- Related topics Accidents at level crossings deserve a specific attention. Although they account for a limited proportion of road accidents (up to 2% of the road fatalities), they account for some 30% of fatalities from the railways perspective.
