Road Safety. Britain in Europe. 12th Westminster Lecture on Transport Safety, December 2001.
Reasons why road safety professionals and decision makers in Britain should see their work in a European context are presented. The variation between member States of the European Union in the level of risk involved in using the roads is illustrated, and the extent to which other Member States have road safety strategies focussed upon research-based casualty reduction targets is reviewed. The evolving role of the European Union itself in road safety policy and its implementation, and the influence thereon of the European Transport Safety Council, are examined. Implications for road safety policy in Britain and for the United Kingdom as a Member State are discussed
