Truck Safety Conference

The Commission will soon present its plans for new vehicle safety standards. This will be a unique opportunity to propose safety improvements for cars, vans and trucks. This truck safety conference will bring together researchers, policy-makers, safety organisations, cities and businesses to discuss how new standards could help EU countries to make their roads and streets safer.

In 2013, 4,000 EU citizens were killed in truck crashes. Poor visibility, blind spots and sub-optimal crash performance are among the contributing causes. Fortunately, there are technologies and solutions to improve trucks safety including better direct vision, safer cab design and active safety technologies. When combined, these trucks could save hundreds of lives.
