New PIN report reveals data about urban road safety in the EU

11 June 2019

The European Road Safety Council (ETSC) issued a new PIN report today, titled "Safer Roads, Safer Cities". According to the data revealed today, road deaths on urban roads decreased at around half the rate of those on rural roads over the period 2010-2017. Some Polis members contributed their case studies.

Urban populations are increasing, the population is ageing, people are being encouraged to walk and cycle more as concerns over congestion and air pollution move up the political agenda.

New forms of mobility are popping up increasingly. Road safety is not always the top priority. As this report shows, deaths and serious injuries on urban roads are not declining as fast as on other types of roads in many countries.

The report contains more than twenty main recommendations for action at EU, country and city authority level and can be downloaded from the ETSC website at: www.etsc.eu/pinflash37.
