The second edition of the European Road Safety Day – which took place in Paris on October 13 - had the objective to discuss EU road safety targets and means to achieve them, with a special focus on urban accidents and vulnerable road users.

The European Commission’s initiative stressed once more the necessity to enhance dialogue between stakeholders in order to find out specific solutions, which take all road users’ needs into account .

Only a balanced traffic mix can guarantee mobility for all.

Fortunately, the use of motorcycles - but also scooters and mopeds - is recognised more and more by European citizens as a solution to beat increasing congestion on our roads.

This trend is making road authorities more aware of the specific needs of these vehicles and their users, and interesting national initiatives are emerging throughout Europe.

The importance of road infrastructure has now also been recognised as a priority to improve road safety and FEMA warmly welcomed the final vote of the Directive on Road Infrastructure Safety Management, supported by the European Parliament and the Council.

Of course, there is still a long way ahead before it becomes natural to integrate PTWs by default in all transport policies.

But we are hopefully going in the right direction...
