ACEA Response to the Consultation Paper on Driver Training and Traffic Safety Education

Protecting the safety of both vehicle users and pedestrians is a key priority for automotive manufacturers. Signatory to the European Road Safety Charter, ACEA has a long track record regarding road safety, based on innovation and responsibility. While the number of casualties has been significantly reduced in the past years, vehicle makers are determined to support efforts to further reduce casualties and injuries associated with road use and to contribute to the EU objective to reduce fatalities. The contribution that automotive manufacturers can make through changes to vehicle is, however, only one part of the integrated approach that is required to fully address the issue of road safety.
