The European Road Safety Charter (ERSC) is the largest civil society platform focusing on road safety. More than 3,500 public and private entities have committed to the ERSC, forming a community to share expertise in road safety actions and initiatives. This community is an amazing resource to highlight the importance of road safety across EU countries and beyond.
Our members’ actions have increased awareness about the causes of road accidents, helped build a culture of road safety across Europe and highlighted successful preventative road safety measures. Our members publish a diverse variety of activites to learn from and become inspired. These can be tailored to specific locations or demographics to create an effective road safety strategy for any country, city or town.
The importance of our members
Our members are essential to the ERSC. Sharing their knowledge has played a significant role in the pan-European effort to make our roads safer. We rely on members uploading information on their activites to further increase knowledge on road safety and submitting good practices used to meet road casualty targets. Those good practices that go above and beyond the standard targets will be highlighted as voluntary commitments.
Our members stage events to encourage collaboration and inspiration, fostering an even stronger culture of road safety. These events reach out to a broad scope of people we alone would not be able to contact, encouraging them to speak out and giving them a place for their voice to be heard.
We need you to take part and help make our roads safer, in ways we never would have imagined.
