EC presents its plan for green, smart & affordable mobilityDaniele D'Onofrio
Brussels, Belgium | 9 December 2020. The European Commission presented its “Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy” together with an Action Plan of 82 initiatives that will guide our work for the next four years. This strategy lays the foundation for how the EU transport system can achieve its green and digital transformation and become more resilient to future crises. As outlined in the European Green Deal, the result will be a 90% cut in emissions by 2050, delivered by a smart, competitive, safe, accessible and affordable transport system.
In terms of road safety, the Strategy confirms the targets and plans of the EU Road Safety Policy Framework 2021-2030 and sets a timeframe for our major upcoming initiatives, including the revision of the Driving Licence Directive, of the Cross-Border Enforcement Directive and of the roadworthiness framework. The Action Plan also refers to an assessment of the need for a road transport agency, to guidance on safe micro-mobility and on maximum blood alcohol levels, to an assessment whether rules on safety management of bridges and other sensitive infrastructure is needed, to access to car data and to a possible extension of eCall.
