The first informal Expert Meeting on Road Safety in the Mediterranean region was held yesterday 17 May at the UfM headquarters in Barcelona, as a forum to exchange experiences and good practices, analyse current efforts and actions, as well as explore ways to substantially improve road safety in the Mediterranean region.
The main operational conclusion was that, as the European and Latin American experiences demonstrate, regional concerted action has proven very effective to prevent and substantially reduce road traffic accidents.
Participants expressed their support for a regional approach to road safety prevention in the Mediterranean and agreed to explore the possibility of establishing a Regional Observatory on Road Safety in the Mediterranean, based on other successful regional experiences. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
