The European Commission is stepping up its support to towns and cities in the new “Urban Mobility Package”. The European Commission will reinforce the exchange of best practice, with the communication as central element of the urban mobility package: “Together towards competitive and resource-efficient urban mobility“.
One of the four basic priorities of the Urban Mobility Package is to enhance urban road safety and protect in particular the vulnerable users from death and serious injury. The European Commission will continue to gather and disseminate good practice examples for road safety planning and consider further measures for reducing the number of serious road traffic injuries in urban areas. Member States should ensure that sustainable urban mobility plans give due consideration to urban road safety as a horizontal issue.
