The European Road Safety Observatory (ERSO) provides reliable and comparable data on road crashes, in-depth analysis and information on road safety trends, practices and policies in the EU. An evidence base composed of statistical reports, country profiles, thematic analysis and key performance indicators is essential to i) measure progress towards reducing deaths and serious injuries on EU roads, ii) identify and quantify road safety problems, iii) develop and evaluate the effectiveness of road safety measures at EU and national level, iv) to facilitate the exchange of experience between countries.
