Dear road safety enthusiasts,



this edition features the launch of our flagship annual public awareness campaign - the ROADPOL Safety Days in which we strive to achieve ZERO deaths on the road for at least one single day. Our aim is to prove that through the Police, institutions and communities joining hands this is totally achievable. And if achieved ones, it could be achieved on any day to come.


Further on you may find out the results of our latest ROADPOL Seat Belt operation aimed at enforcing the usage of these safety devices plus the crucial child seats.


Besides being a network of enforcement, ROADPOL is also a network of knowledge and education. Hence herein you will find news on the upcoming annual ROADPOL Seminar. 


Enjoy your reading!


Stay Alive and Save Lives!


Yours Sincerely,

Heinz Albert Stumpen
