EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its July 2016 e-update on the topic of Road Safety. The theme is described as follows:
Ever since humankind started sharing public space with vehicles, road safety has been a hot topic. Pedestrians and cyclists are most vulnerable and often this is an important barrier when promoting sustainable, active travel. This e-update is a journey into the history of road safety and explores the relationship with Mobility Management and sustainability.

As the UK national body represented within EPOMM, Act TravelWise copy-edits the English version of the e-bulletin and distributes it within the UK.
* Note that 'mobility management' is the European term equating roughly to transport demand management (TDM) - the 'soft measures' aimed at travel behaviour change away from single-occupancy car use, sometimes referred to as 'smarter choices' in the UK.
