The roads in the EU are getting safer -- from around 76 000 road deaths per year in 1991 to 26 000 deaths reported in 2013. This is the result of hard work by many actors on local, national and EU level. The EU road safety work focuses on seven objectives for the period 2011-2020: Better education of road users, better enforcement of traffic rules, safer roads, safer vehicles, better use of modern technologies, reducing the number of serious road traffic injuries and improving the safety of vulnerable road users. The EU road safety work is a great success story. Yet, the work is still far from done. Every death is one too many. This video was launched on the occasion of the sixth European Road Safety Day, organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Greek EU Presidency in Athens on 9th May 2014. The European Road Safety Day is a yearly event that brings together road safety experts, NGOs, policy makers and the industry to find common solutions to European road safety problems.
