EAC welcomes EC'initiative establishing the European Partnership for safe& automated road transport

On 27 August 2019, the European Commission closed the feedback period for its initiative providing a long-term framework for planning research and pre-deployment programmes for driverless vehicles across the EU and nationally. Since its inception the European Automobile Clubs asbl comprising currently six member clubs from Austria, Germany, Slovakia as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina representing above 3 million road users has been understood as a consumer organisation advocating for effective harmonisation of rules and regulations as concerns the use of motorised vehicles across Europe in order to enhance road safety and sustainable mobility in and beyond the European Union.


The association was thus pleased to note the European Commission’s envisaged steps towards the forthcoming framework programme Horizon Europe acknowledging that the European Partnership for Safe and Automated Road Transport will be paving the promising path for more coordination and cooperation in the road transport sector in Europe. In particular, EAC emphasised not only the need for research as regards the technical safety concerns but also issues related to the full protection of the motorists’ personal data as well as the required free access to car data as needed for the effective settlement of claims and damages conducted by the automobile clubs.
