Call for Juncker to reverse decision to drop serious road injury target

More than 40 organisations concerned with road safety from across Europe together with 11 members of the European Parliament have sent a letter to President Jean-Claude Juncker urging him to not drop setting new EU target to cut serious road injuries. POLIS is among the signatories.

The long-planned initiative had been reconfirmed in a Commission press release (http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-15-4656_en.htm?utm_source=ETSC&u...) as recently as 24 March, and has already been strongly supported by member states (http://register.consilium.europa.eu/doc/srv?l=EN&f=ST%2016951%202010%20I...) and the European Parliament (http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?type=TA&reference=P7-TA-20...).

The letter and full list of signatories can be downloaded here (http://etsc.eu/wp-content/uploads/2015-06-09-letter-juncker_web.pdf).
