The EC’s Road Safety newsletterDaniele D'Onofrio
The new issue of the European Commission Road Safety newsletter has been published on their website: Road Safety strategies and action plans in the EU. Even if there is no formal recommendation from the Commission to elaborate a road safety plan, the existence of a national road safety strategy is a clear indicator that the issue is high on the political agenda. In fact a well-crafted plan is a tool for authorities to identify the most relevant road safety actions, to focus their work efficiently and to assign the necessary resources. It also facilitates accountability and transparency, and helps to communicate road safety priorities to citizens.
The Commission would support and facilitate this work of the EU countries, for example, by creating opportunities for dialogue and exchanging best practice.
