Welcome to the Annual Report of 2017. This is the third and final report against our three-year strategy 2015 - 2017. This strategy focused on four principle objectives. We set out to deliver safer and more secure roads and to also ensure that the TISPOL network was effective and efficient in the way it conducts its business and engages with key stakeholders within the road safety arena across Europe.
News and Events
At the end of April, two Tesla Model S were being put into service by the Police Luxembourg.
Electric vehicles will be more and more present on our roads in the future. It is a less known technology that will raise new challenges. A key question is whether such vehicles are suitable for use by administrations, especially in law enforcement. The Police Luxembourg has a very good organized maintenance service, to follow this project closely and make an in-depth analysis.
Luxembourg's Central Traffic Police (UCPR-Truck-Control-Unit) carried out nationwide a large-scale control of heavy transport.
• In the south of the country, a heavy transport was immobilized due to a lack of load securing and an axle load exceeded by several tons and the total weight. The excessive axle loads lead to a disproportionate increase in road damage.
In 2017, the idea of a joint road safety project was developed at the Schengen High school in Perl. The Germano-Luxembourg Schengen High School is a large-regional school designed to provide future generations with a European identity. It was therefore obvious to carry out the first traffic prevention project in the Greater Region in cooperation with the Luxembourgish partners within this school.
