General safety of vehicles and protection of vulnerable road users

24-01-2020

As part of the third 'Europe on the move' package of measures, on 27 May 2018, the European Commission presented a proposal for a regulation on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers, as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users. The regulation is part of the EU's efforts to halve the number of fatal and serious injuries in road crashes between 2020 and 2030. It will introduce a number of advanced vehicle safety features ...

As part of the third 'Europe on the move' package of measures, on 27 May 2018, the European Commission presented a proposal for a regulation on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers, as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users. The regulation is part of the EU's efforts to halve the number of fatal and serious injuries in road crashes between 2020 and 2030. It will introduce a number of advanced vehicle safety features that passenger cars, vans, buses and trucks will have to have as standard equipment in order to be sold on the internal market. These include intelligent speed assistance, alcohol interlock installation facilitation, driver drowsiness and attention warning, emergency stop signal, reversing detection and event data recorder. Additional requirements will apply to specific vehicle groups, such as vulnerable road user detection for buses and trucks. The new regulation, adopted by the co-legislators in 2019 and signed on 27 November 2019, will replace three current type-approval regulations as of July 2022: the General Vehicle Safety Regulation, the Pedestrian Protection Regulation and the Hydrogen-powered Motor Vehicles Regulation.

Workshop on “Type-approval requirements for motor vehicles as regards their general safety and protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users”

15-10-2019

In 2017, 25 300 people died in road accidents in Europe, while about a million were injured. Ms Róża THUN (MEP), the Chair of Digital Single Market Working Group of the IMCO Committee and the Rapporteur for the regulation on the “Type-approval requirements for motor vehicles as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users”, chaired this expert workshop in order to explore how technological means, including artificial intelligence, can reduce the number ...

It-trasport bit-triq: standards tat-traffiku u tas-sikurezza

01-11-2017

L-Unjoni Ewropea ddotat lilha nnifisha bl-għan li toħloq żona Ewropea ta' sikurezza fit-toroq fuq perjodu ta' għaxar snin bejn l-2010 u l-2020. Il-kompetenza f'dan il-qasam hija primarjament nazzjonali. Għaldaqstant, l-UE qed tiffoka l-miżuri tagħha fuq il-kundizzjoni teknika tal-vetturi, it-trasport ta' merkanzija perikoluża u s-sikurezza tat-toroq.

Research for TRAN Committee - The Impact of Higher or Lower Weight and Volume of Cars on Road Safety, Particularly for Vulnerable Users

16-11-2015

The study provides an in-depth analysis of necessary technological changes, in order to improve the impact of higher or lower weight and volume of cars on road safety, particularly for, but not limited to vulnerable users. The analysis found that there are many vehicle based safety technologies that offer promise and further work should be undertaken to assess if future European type-approval regulation would be appropriate and proportional. Recommendations of technologies to consider are given.

Cableway installations: initial appraisal of the Commission's impact assessment

29-10-2014

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment accompanying the proposal for a Regulation on cableway installations. Following the European Commission’s New Legislative Framework for simplifying EU legislation in the area of free movement of industrial products, the proposed Regulation on cableway installations aims to replace the existing Directive 2000/9/EC on cableway installations designed to carry persons (applicable ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment accompanying the proposal for a Regulation on cableway installations. Following the European Commission’s New Legislative Framework for simplifying EU legislation in the area of free movement of industrial products, the proposed Regulation on cableway installations aims to replace the existing Directive 2000/9/EC on cableway installations designed to carry persons (applicable from 3 May 2002). European cableway installations amount to 60 per cent of the world total (mainly in mountainous regions in France, Austria, Italy, Germany and Switzerland). 80 to 90 per cent of the global cableways market is represented by three big European companies, and the remaining 10 to 20 per cent by European SMEs. This note, prepared by the Ex-Ante Impact Assessment Unit for the European Parliament's Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection, analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact Assessment Handbook, appear to be met by the IA. It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposal. It is drafted for informational and background purposes to assist the relevant parliamentary committee(s) and Members more widely in their work.

Technical Development and Deployment of Alcohol Interlocks in Road Safety Policy

14-03-2014

This study presents a discussion on alcohol interlocks in terms of their use, effectiveness and contribution to road safety. While summarising the most recent road safety developments and providing an account of the drink-driving phenomenon, the study outlines the technical requirements for the use of these devices and the various methods of use currently established in EU Member States. The study concludes with an analysis of their cost-effectiveness in relation to their deployment in the commercial ...

The Road Safety Performance of Commercial Light Goods Vehicles

15-10-2009

This report describes the collation and analysis of a wide range of disparate European data on the safety of light goods vehicles (LGVs – goods vehicles with a maximum mass not exceeding 3.5 tonnes). It includes data on regulations, new registrations, stock, traffic, freight performance, business sectors, accidents and casualties. It identifies the trends in both the LGV market and safety performance and identifies areas that could be a priority for safety interventions.
