Οι δράσεις του τμήματος Οδικής Ασφάλειας της εθελοντικής ομάδας συνεχίζονται και υλοποιούνται πιστά βάση του ετήσιου χρονοδιαγράμματος του 2017. Η εκπαίδευση και η ενημέρωση δεν συναντούν εμπόδια και δεν επιδέχονται διακρίσεων. Άλλωστε ο καθένας μας είναι χρήστης των δρόμων είτε είναι πεζός είτε οδηγός. Τις εορταστικές περιόδους συνηθίζουμε να βλέπουμε την κυκλοφοριακή κίνηση να αυξάνεται παρά την οικονομική ύφεση. Ειδικά το Πάσχα, την μεγαλύτερη γιορτή της Ορθοδοξίας, οι δρόμοι γεμίζουν από ευχάριστους ταξιδιώτες που εφοδιάζονται με ευχάριστα συναισθήματα όσα προβλήματα και αν έχουν.

The aim of the IMPACT (Involvement and Motivation for Participation of Active young Citizens to stand for Traffic safety) project is to boost international efforts to save young lives on the road by exchanging information and sharing good practices, providing a platform for long-term targeted impact through a list of exceptional players in the road safety and accident prevention field from Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Reaction Cyprus has set up a mobile alcotest unit in 2014 that has performed several actions since then. The last actions were 4 events during the second half of 2016 and the 1st quarter of 2017. The main idea of the action is to give the opportunity to citizens coming our of specific bars, clubs, restaurants etc to take a voluntary alcohol breath test in order for them to know the level of alcohol in their blood. The overall goal of the action is to raise awareness and inform the public of the dangers of combining alcohol and driving.

The 2016 road safety statistics released by the Commission on the 28 March 2017 at the Road Safety conference in Malta show a drop of 2% in the number of fatalities recorded across the EU last year. 25,500 people lost their lives on EU roads in 2016, 600 fewer than in 2015 and 6,000 fewer than in 2010. A further 135,000 people were seriously injured on the road according to Commission's estimates.

Following two years of stagnation, 2016 marks the return of a positive downwards trend and over the last six years, road fatalities have been cut by 19%. While this pace is encouraging, it may nevertheless be insufficient if the EU is to meet its target of halving road fatalities between 2010 and 2020. This calls for further efforts from all actors and particularly from the national and local authorities, which deliver most of the day-to-day actions, such as enforcement and awareness-raising.

During the conference Transport Ministers of the Member States of the European Union reconfirmed their commitment to improving road safety by endorsing the Valletta Declaration on Road Safety. With this declaration, Transport Ministers have agreed to continue to reinforce measures necessary to reduce the number of road deaths in the the UE by 2020 from the 2010 basline, and enhance cooperation between Member States—including relevant authorities, civil society, research institutes and the private sector—in particular with regard to road safety plans and strategies following a risk-based or an integrated approach.
