Preparatory work for an EU road safety strategy 2020-2030
Final report - Study
The European Commission is preparing an EU road safety strategy for the period 2020 to 2030 and towards zero deaths by 2050. It has commissioned preparatory work carried out by Jeanne Breen Consulting in partnership with SWOV and Loughborough University’s Design School to assist in this process. The Commission set three objectives to be addressed: 1) assess the outcome of the road safety policy framework to 2017, building on the interim evaluation carried out in 2015; 2) consider current and future changes in mobility and its consequences and challenges in relation to road safety; and 3)... assist in the preparation of the EU road safety framework for 2020-2030. The preparatory work comprised: - a systematic, high-level scan of activity to date within the framework of Policy Orientations across good practice road safety management dimensions of results, interventions and institutional management; - an assessment of future prospects based on a review of emerging social and mobility trends; increased ambition for better road safety results; increasing adoption of the Safe System approach internationally; increasing scope of institutional delivery and opportunities for aligning with other societal objectives. - proposals for a Towards Zero strategy 2020-2030 around a new road safety performance framework and enhanced delivery mechanisms.
