Ο οργανισμός μας σε συνεργασία με την Αμπελουργική Πολιτεία του Πύργου ΚΑΝΙΑΡΗ και το Le Mirage Catering στο πλαίσιο της εκδήλωσης με θέμα το κρασί, που θα πραγματοποιηθεί στον χώρο εκδηλώσεων του Αμπελώνα θα ενημερώσει τους επισκέπτες για την σχέση του αλκοόλ με την οδήγηση.

Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration have supported project EDWARD – the European Day without a Road Death which took place on 19 September during the European Mobility Week.

Every year more than 6 million passengers travel by intercity buses to reach their homes, works or holiday destinations. Only a small part of them use seat belts – to be more specific, only 13,9 % of passengers do follow safety instructions regarding seat belts. Lack of knowledge surely is not the main factor because more than 62% of travelers do know that they must wear seat belts.

With such a worrying trend, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has encouraged and invited carriers and bus station managers to sign a “Promotion of seat belts in intercity buses memorandum”.

Summer is coming, and with summer comes increased dangers in roads or railways. There are more children playing outside, drivers and passengers think about long-waited holidays and are prone to various distractions. Increased road and railway traffic coincides with a higher volume of traffic accidents.

We are a group of traffic police officers interested in improving Road Safety. We want to have safer roads and reduce the amount of accidents and deaths. We spend part of our free time in helping drivers to solve their doubts about the Spanish Traffic Law, for that reason we created in 2015 a page on facebook where we write articles an answer doubts to the people who do not speak Spanish.
