What is the EU Urban Road Safety Award?

 

The EU Urban Road Safety Award highlights the contribution made by local authorities towards improving the safety of European roads.

It rewards outstanding and innovative achievements by local authorities in the area of road safety and encourages the exchange of good practice across Europe.

Recognising the crucial role that towns and cities across Europe play in improving road safety, especially in light of the fact that 38 percent of road fatalities and more than 50 percent of serious road injuries occur on urban roads, the award rewards local authorities for adopting holistic measures to improve road safety, within the spirit of the internationally recognised 'Safe System' concept.
