Road safety: European Commission responds to need for safe and secure parking areas for trucks

400.000 safe and secure parking spaces are lacking in the EU. This is the conclusion of the study published by the European Commission today. Cargo crimes are more frequent than ever, and about 75% of these incidents are happening when trucks are parked in unsecure parking places. As a response to this critical situation, both for drivers and cargo owners, the Commission is promoting safe and secure parking areas, making available CEF-funding and it is setting up an expert group to implement the agreed standard.
