MEPs vote on eCall
Today in Strasbourg in the Plenary Session of the European Parliament was the definitive vote on 112-e-call with a big majority (451 in favor and 151 against) Thanks to MEP Olga Sehnalova, rapporteur, among many others who did a good job to put this live saving and injury reducing device on the rails.
Now we still need the support of the European Council
