Euro-MPs have backed a recommendation that all cars be fitted with a road crash alert system by 2015.
London Liberal Democrat MEP Sarah Ludford has welcomed the call for the European Commission to make compulsory by 2015 the fitting of the 'eCall' system, which automatically alerts emergency services to road crashes.
Sarah Ludford commented:
“Over 2,6OO people were killed or seriously injured on London roads last year, and installing this device could save many of them from death. Even if someone is unconscious, the system will let rescue workers know exactly where they are."
