The EEA EFTA States welcome and support the European Commission’s initiative to make the most of advances in vehicle technology as a tool to avoid deaths and injuries resulting from traffic accidents. In their comment, the EEA EFTA States note that priority should be given to measures to assist drivers to maintain the speed limit, to not drink and drive and to wear safety belts. Moreover, priority should be given to measures that can avoid, prevent or mitigate the most frequent types of accidents.
Submitting comments on important policy issues is one of the ways in which the EEA EFTA States participate in shaping EU legislation. A typical EEA EFTA Comment provides a brief commentary and suggestions regarding Commission initiatives such as green papers or legislative proposals. The comments are endorsed by the Standing Committee of the EFTA States and officially noted by the EEA Joint Committee after they have been sent to the relevant services in the Commission, the European Parliament or the Council.
