THE 'EUROPEANIZATION' OF THE COMMON ROAD SAFETY POLICY: AN ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS

Mercedes Castro-Nuno (), Jose I. Castillo-Manzano and Xavier Fageda

ERSA conference papers from European Regional Science Association

Abstract: The 2001 White Paper and its development in the 3rd European Road Safety Action Program, represent a turning point in the history of the European Road Safety Policy. The possible determinants of the road mortality in the EU over (2000-2009) are examined using a panel data. Our main finding is the negative effect and statistical significance of the Europeanization variable (the number of years that a country has been in the EU). By this variable, we test the effectiveness of EU programs to save lives in road accidents according to the years that each country has been in the EU.
