Welcome to the European Road Safety Observatory
Since the completion of the SafetyNet project
in October 2008, this website is no longer updated.
This website is one of the final results of SafetyNet, which
was an integrated project funded by DG-TREN of the European
Commission. The objective of the project was to build the
framework of a European Road Safety Observatory, which will
be the primary focus for road safety data and knowledge.
