ETSC is a Brussels-based independent non-profit making organisation dedicated to reducing the numbers of deaths and injuries in transport in Europe. Founded in 1993, ETSC provides an impartial source of expert advice on transport safety matters to the European Commission, the European Parliament, and Member States. It maintains its independence through funding from a variety of sources including membership subscriptions, the European Commission, and public and private sector support for various activities.
ETSC seeks to identify and promote effective measures on the basis of international scientific research and best practice in areas which offer the greatest potential for a reduction in transport crashes and casualties. It provides factual information in the form of scientific reports, fact sheets and newsletters in support of high safety standards in EU harmonisation, the take up of best practice and transport safety research. ETSC also organises several national and international conferences every year.
25,845 people were killed on roads in EU28 in 2014 as a consequence of road collisions (a decrease of just 0.6% compared to 2013). Almost 8% reduction is needed now every year between 2015 and 2020 in order to reach the EU target for 2020 to halve the number of road deaths compared to 2010. ETSC argues believes that improving infrastructure safety and creating better roads for motorists is a key element for reducing deaths and serious injuries on European roads.
