Safety features, including intelligent high-speed assistance and advanced emergency-braking systems, will have to be installed in new vehicles starting in 2022.

These regulations were agreed on by European lawmakers in order to make roads safer. The additional technology is also intended to better protect cyclists and pedestrians.

In 2017, 25,000 people died on EU roads. An additional 135,000 were seriously injured.
