Vehicle Safety Standards

EDM number 1792 in 2017-19, proposed by Mark Hendrick on 31/10/2018.

That this House notes the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the European Parliament's Donnelly Report, which introduced the toughest car crash standards in the world and has saved more than 78,000 lives across the EU since its enforcement; commends the Report's expertly crafted technical specifications for crash tests, which have cut the annual number of vehicle occupant deaths across Europe by half since 1 October 1998; observes the legislative text has been adopted as the standard used by the United Nation's World Forum for Harmonisation of Vehicles Regulations and implemented by 62 countries saving hundreds of thousands of lives globally; and calls on the Government to support measures to build upon these standards to improve vehicle occupant safety further and prevent avoidable deaths.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
