The UK's Campaign for Safe Road Design is playing a lead role in calling on the EU to promote a programme of safety engineering on high-risk roads across Europe. It claims the programme will reduce the annual €160bn (2 per cent of European GDP) cost of road crashes by €50bn.

The Campaign makes its call for action to MEPs tonight (2 December) as the European Road Assessment Programme, EuroRAP, publishes maps for 15 EU countries showing the busy high-risk roads where deaths are concentrated.
