EU Public Consultation on the revision of the Vehicle General Safety and the Pedestrian Safety Regulations

  • mobility

The EU Regulations on vehicle safety aim to protect drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists that can be hit by a vehicle during an accident.

The current European Commission initiative aims to further decrease the number of road fatalities and injuries. To achieve this, amendments or new requirements could be proposed for the General Safety Regulation and the Pedestrian Safety Regulation. In these proposals, there is a focus on vulnerable road users including children and the elderly.
