In 2011 we were invited to
Brussels to talk to MEPs and EU officials about the success of our
campaign in the UK. This was especially relevent because the EU
Transport and Tourism Committee were developing their report on Road
safety in the EU.
We were delighted that on 21st June the committee approved the
report. In its press release the committee announced :-

children under 14 years old killed on roads by 60% and those seriously
injured by 40%. They also say children should be taught road safety at
the youngest possible age."
