The European Road Safety Charter Signatories could save lives thanks to 112

27 February 2007

EEENA, the European Emergency Number Association is a signatory of the Charter in order to fight against injuries and deaths on European roads. More than 100 million of Europeans are travelling within the EU every year. EENA is campaigning for a single European emergency call number 112.

It is estimated by the European Commission services that only in the EU-15, at least 5000 more lives a year could be saved with an efficient 112.

EENA is launching a citizens' initiative with the support of an important number of Members of the European Parliament for a more efficient 112.
