• Policy Position on Pedestrian Protection

    06 July 2016

    While the current EU regulation on vehicle type approval has significantly improved the safety of pedestrians, casualties still remain excessively high: in 2013, 5,542 pedestrians and 2002 cyclists were killed on European roads. FIA Region I recommends that the EU improves pedestrian safety by adding safety test requirements to new areas of passenger cars and vans, especially to the vehicle’s front bonnet.
