Then you can get aware with the upcoming flagship 24-Hour ROADPOL Speed Marathon – the largest police enforcement operation in the world, just last year engaging more than 14.000 police officers.


Further on, you can read about France's new policies on e-scooters, Finland's approach to young drivers behavior.


Read on to find out also what innovative drink driving prevention campaign our colleagues in Italy came up with.


Enjoy your reading!


Yours Sincerely,
