It is a privilege to invite representatives of the media to the press conference of the #SafeRoadsTODAY Event on June 4th, 2021, 9am CET, to present the latest deployment activities of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) all over Europe.

The #SafeRoadsTODAY Event is the kick-off of permanent C-ITS service operations across Europe and will present the way towards a harmonised depoyment of C-ITS in Europe, which was driven by 18 European states and various associated partners collaborating in the C-Roads Platform. The event will demonstrate the beneficial impacts of C-ITS on road safety, the results from various first implementations and the plans for C-ITS rollout across Europe. The progress and harmonisation of C-ITS solutions has lifted the discussion from mere technical issues up to the service level. Reliable C-ITS services available today are a driving force of a new era of road safety in Europe.
