1 Journée d étude consacrée à la sécurité routière des deux roues European Commission's view of cycling safety Casto López Benítez Road Safety Unit Directorate General for Mobility and European Commission

2 EU Policy 2011 White Paper: Objectives for urban mobility : Halve the use of conventionally fuelled cars in cities by 2030 Achieve CO2 free city logistics in major urban areas by Urban Mobility Package: Reinforces EU support to cities Focus on integrated and comprehensive urban mobility planning Call for coordinated action at all levels of government EU, national, regional, local

3 EU Road Safety policy White Paper 2011: Towards a "zero-vision" on road safety: By 2050, move close to zero fatalities in road transport. In line with this goal, the EU aims at halving road casualties by Policy Orientations on Road Safety : halve the number of fatalities One of the 7 priority objectives is the protection of cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists

4 EU policy on cycling Luxembourg Declaration on Cycling as a climate friendly Mode, 7 October 2015 Valletta Declaration on Road Safety, 29 March 2017 The transport ministers will undertake to: take cycling and walking into account in mobility plans, safety policies and measures and, where feasible, consider the inclusion of dedicated infrastructure;

5 Target - 50%

6 Pedestrians and cyclists constituted 42% of all fatal victims of road accidents in the EU in Cyclist, pedestrians and motorcyclists account for more than 2/3 of fatalities in urban areas.

7 Figure 2: Number of cyclist fatalities and percentage of all road fatalities, EU, or latest available year Source: CARE database, data available in May 2016

8 Figure 3: Cyclist fatality rates per million population by country, 2014 or latest available year Sources: CARE database (EUROSTAT for population data), data available in May 2016

9 Cycling safety Behavior: training and awareness No European highway Code Vienna Convention of 1968 Member States' law applies Regional or local administrations often have competences Commission's role: coordination and exchange of best practices

10 Cycling safety Behavior: training and awareness For motor vehicle drivers Driving license (Driving licence directive) Professional drivers (initial and periodic training: Directive on professional drivers training) For cyclists (no licence) As part of education Awareness campaigns

11 Cycling safety: Infrastructure As far as possible adapted to be shared, especially in urban areas. (e.g. 30 km/h zones, dedicated infrastructure) Urban Mobility Plans (should address road safety) EU funds for infrastructure (ERDF, IEE) European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development

12 Passive safety Cycling safety: Vehicles For motor vehicles (bumper, bonnet, underrun protection) EU type-approval For cyclists: helmet Active safety For cyclists: conspicuity (lighting and reflective equipment) For motor vehicles: New technologies for crash avoidance. Detection, warning and automatic braking systems (e.g. blind spot detection) EU type-approval

13 Cycling safety: Vehicles Review of the type-approval requirements Driver assistance systems Cyclist and pedestrian detection + emergency breaking (in the future collision avoidance manoeuvre) Direct visibility requirements for trucks

14 Research and data collection Grants for research in road safety Horizon 2020 PROSPECT (Proactive Safety for Pedestrians and Cyclists) XCYCLE (Cycling safety) CARE database Enhanced with seriously injured data MAIS+3 (particularly relevant for cyclists)

15 Commission's own initiatives CIVITAS European Mobility Week Road Safety Observatory European Road Safety Charter Participatory platform (enterprises, associations, research institutions and public authorities) Carry out concrete actions and share good practices

16 European Road Safety Charter

17 Challenges Increased cycling Electric bicycles (plus others like self-balancing or powered scooters trotinettes ) Distraction (for both motor vehicle drivers and cyclists and pedestrians) Elderly users (in particular elderly cyclists) Automation vs. vulnerable road users

18 Conclusions All users share the public space. Safety is a shared responsibility Risk awareness and training are essential Rules must respected Dedicated infrastructure is desirable but not always possible/affordable Technology will help (e.g. compensating for error and distraction)
