FERSI is pleased to announce the publication of its new position paper. The paper intends to offer guidance to Member States on developing a national road safety programme. Its main message is that a road safety programme must be based on scientifically sound evidence in order to ensure that it focuses on the most relevant issues (i.e. made the correct ‘diagnosis’) and implements the most appropriate treatments (i.e. selected the best ‘therapy’). The paper results in five concrete recommendations for both the diagnosis and therapy stages.
