8 June 2017:

  1.  EU sets new target of halving the number of people seriously injured on our roads:

    The Council is setting a target of halving the number of serious injuries on roads in the EU by 2030 from the 2020 baseline, using a recently agreed common definition. Of particular concern is the number of pedestrians and cyclists killed or seriously injured each year.

    Today's Council conclusions on road safety endorse the Valletta declaration on improving road safety adopted at an informal ministerial meeting organised by the presidency on 29 March 2017. They will feed into the next EU strategy on road safety, which is expected to be developed for the decade 2020-2030.

    Read the full text of the Council conclusions on road safety.

  2.  There was an initial debate concernnig the mobility package unveiled by the European Commission on 31 May. "While member states are still analysing these recent proposals, they generally welcomed the Commission's efforts to clarify the existing rules and step up enforcement," said the Maltese presidency. "However, some key parts of the package will need detailed assessment in respect of their social, economic and in some cases also environmental impact."

  3. Training for lorry and bus drivers to focus more on safety – Council agrees its position:

    The EU wants to make professional drivers more aware of the safety and environmental aspects of their driving. Working towards this goal, the Council today agreed its position (a 'general approach') on a proposed update of the rules for the training and qualifications of lorry and bus drivers. The improved rules will put greater emphasis on safety and the environment in the training and will improve recognition of training received in another EU country. The general approach is the Council's position for talks with the European Parliament. Both institutions will need to agree on the final text.

    Lorry and bus drivers' qualifications – Council general approach.
