We're pleased to be in Croatia for a road safety seminar to be held in Zagreb. The event, organised jointly with the European Transport Safety Council, sits within the two-year STRIDER Project (1 March 2015 to 28 February 2017.
STRIDER aims to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on Europe’s roads, as well as promoting efficient cross border co-operation between European Member States concerning the enforcement of traffic rules and the sharing of good practice with traffic police forces across Europe.
Police conducted a special control operation last week, focusing on heavy traffic. Officers detected 270 violations of driving times and rest periods. The journey of 14 vehicles was completely interrupted due to the poor condition of the vehicle. A total of 122 penalties were issued for these offences.
