Dear ROADPOL devotees,
by tradition September marked the annual peak of our endeavors towards increased road safety across the European continent.
Our flagship annual campaign, the ROADPOL Safety Days, was successfully carried out with as much as 23 European countries taking active part and support from police organizations and units from as far as the United States and the United Arab Emirates.
For the first time this year we upgraded our primary tool for wider public engagement, the ROADPOL Safety Days Pledge, to introduce the online signature in line with the current digital age.
Find out more in this special edition of our newsletter dedicated entirely to the results of the campaign.
