Almost all of us know someone who has been killed in a road crash. In the last decade alone, half a million Europeans have been killed on our roads. This reservoir of human suffering rarely surfaces in the media – each personal tragedy is endured by the few involved. In 2001, pilot EuroRAP results were available for just 4 countries. Now, only a few years later, this report describes work done, planned, or in hand in nearly 20 countries.
