Road News: The Charter is changing!

During the past 8 years, together we have been able to build a community of over 2,300 signatories who have contributed to improving road safety standards and culture. This is thanks to the real commitments and concrete actions, just like yours.

The European Road Safety Charter is now evolving into its third phase for 2013-2016. As a signatory of the former Charter, we ask you to stay with us and continue your commitment towards road safety!

The renewed ERSCharter features an easier process of making commitments and gives further autonomy to its members to undertake and evaluate their actions. Moreover, it invites you to participate in dialogue and exchange good practices with other members through a new interactive website and revitalised social media presence.

What stays the same is our conviction that road safety is a shared responsibility in which the civil society has a significant role to play. Our new motto says it all: "Together we are road safety!"
