Invitation to online press conference

Kick-off event for the ROADPOL Safety Days


ROADPOL invites you to an event and press conference to open the 2020 ROADPOL Safety Days.
ROADPOL is a network of European traffic police forces. Led by senior police officers, ROADPOL is primarily committed to reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on European roads. Our members are the traffic police forces of various European countries, but we are open for countries outside Europe as well, because there should not be borders for saving lives.


• Statements by Mr Volker Orben, ROADPOL President and Mrs Nicole Steingaß, State Secretary of Home Affairs and Sports, Rhineland-Palatinate.

• Livestream from a roadside safety check.
• Panel discussion on road safety, featuring:
     o Matthew Baldwin, European Commission, Deputy Director-General of DG MOVE
     o Jonathon Passmore, World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, Programme Manager - Violence and Injury Prevention
     o Ellen Townsend, European Transport Safety Council, Policy Director
     o Nora Guitet, Michelin, Corporate Public Affairs
