Please note that EuroRAP has published today the first comprehensive safety analysis of the EU Trans-European (TEN-T) road network with the following results:
* 15% of the TEN-T road network has unacceptably high safety risk
* Just 31% of the network meets “best possible” safety standard commitment
* Over 20000 deaths and serious injuries per year on the TEN-T road network
* EUR10 billion cost of road crashes annually on the TEN-T road network

EuroRAP and ERTICO – ITS Europe are planning to identify cost-efficient ITS services which – if deployed – will improve the road safety rating. This will provide an incentive to implement ITS services in the road infrastructure.
