What problem did you address/are you addressing? 
Main issues are higher level of safety for all road users and the reduction of the scope and consequences of traffic casualties, especially for the most vulnerable road users (cyclists, motorcylists and pedestrians).

We all made some progress from 2010. but this is not enough.Actions and projects for which we have decided to refer to the most vulnerable groups in road traffic, which in practice have very little space in the actions and projects coducted by relevant institutions. Also, our approach is comprehensive lifelong education trough, rather than repressive approach and one term educations and licensing, or issuing of permits.
