The UK's Campaign for Safe Road Design is playing a lead role in calling on the EU to promote a programme of safety engineering on high-risk roads across Europe.

  • Half a million killed on EU roads in past decade
  • Safe road design could cut annual road deaths and injuries by 50,000
  • Road crashes cost annual €160bn (2 per cent of EU GDP)
  • Europe's new 10-year plan must incorporate safe road design
  • Europe-wide maps of risky roads published
