Dear road safety enthusiasts,



raising public awareness of road safety is among the basic pillars of ROADPOL's mission.This is why we created the ROADPOL Safety Days - our flagship annual campaign. Herein you can find some fresh news on the upcoming 2022 edition.


Further on you may find out the results of our latest enforcement action on the roads of the continent - targeting trucks and buses.


There is a summer story as well. In the month of leisure travel we are actively monitoring traffic flows and through our "Safe Holiday" operation we are ensuring no vacation time is ruined by reckless driving and unsafe vehicles.


Also, read an amazing story by our colleagues in Poland. It is heart-touching. Literally.
