 Hungarian Day of Transport

 

IMG 20200514 WA0011"The Day of Transport Culture" was held 11 May 2020 in Hungary. Since 2015 it is a day when various events, activities try to raise public awarness of diversity, beauty and techincal achievements of transport as well as the importance of safety-conscious, tolerant, attentive behaviour on road, rail, water and air traffic.

Unfortunately this year was different because of the pandemic situation but Hungarian Police wanted to express their gratitude for those who have to hold on in this hard situation and have to transport people and essential foodstuff inside and outside the country. That is why police officers surprised truck, train and bus drivers all around the country with small gifts and said thank you for their work involving the travelling citizens in this project.
On this day handclapping was not just for healthcare workers but also for these everyday heroes. 👏
