European Road Safety Day

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. A specific stand-alone target (3.6) in the Health Goal to reduce road traffic fatalities was adopted.

European Road Safety Day (ERSD) is an initiative by the European Commission to promote best practice among EU member states on road safety issues.  It has been held every year since 2007 on May 6th  (except years 2009 and 2011). Each ERSD focuses on a specific road safety theme.
