Road Safety: improvements in clean, connected and automate mobility

Last March 13, 2019, the European Commission has adopted a new set of rules for the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on Europe's roads.

 

The C-ITS will permit a direct communication among vehicles, and road infrastructures on the current situations of roads, especially in case of danger, road works and the timing of traffic lights.

The new rules take a great importance if we consider them as part of the wider package on clean mobility introduced by the Juncker Commission, that will be the basis of climate neutrality in the second half of the century and contributing to the EU's long-term goal of moving close to zero fatalities and serious injuries by 2050 ("Vision Zero").

In the words of the Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, Violeta Bulc: "This decision […] will significantly contribute to us achieving our ambitions on road safety, and is an important stepping stone towards connected and automated mobility."

 

As the Commission adopted these rules as a delegated act, the European Parliament and the Council may oppose its entry into force within a period of two months.
