Vehicle Safety, 2019

Since 2014, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), has worked with the European Commission to assess the feasibility, costs and benefits of over 50 safety measures to update mandatory new vehicle safety standards in Europe.

Bringing together all stakeholders, the team identified a package of measures that offers maximum casualty benefit while being cost-effective for society. This package, which will be incorporated into the Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations and is predicted to save 25,000 lives in EU-28 over the next 16 years.
