Saving 30 000 lives in traffic

Every year more than 30 000 persons are killed in road traffic in Europe (EU27). The trend is declining but there is still much to do to improve traffic safety. Working together across national borders can enable us to reach Vision Zero.

Safe traffic means safe road infrastructure and safe vehicles. Safe roads have to deal with mistakes that road users might do. Enhancing road safety saves life, health and money - now and in the future. To exchange knowledge and discuss topics related to road infrastructure safety the BALTRIS Final conference was arranged. Around 70 persons from different countries - the Baltic states, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway - met in Lithuania August 2012.
