The Valletta Declaration 2017 (Valletta Declaration on Road Safety) was passed by the EU Ministers of Transport in Malta. Between 2020 and 2030, the number of dead and injured road traffic casualties is intended to be halved compared to the 2016 figures. An ambitious goal for 2050 is zero fatalities on EU roads. Alcohol, drugs and excessive speed count among the most frequent causes of accidents. The Valletta Declaration is a political affirmation of road traffic safety measures from a technical and infrastructure-related standpoint and of further increasing driver education. Speed limits of 30km/h are to take effect in high-risk situations in connection with cyclists, playground areas or construction sites.
