ROADPOL Newsletter



Dear followers,


this edition is dedicated to the results of our flagship road safety awareness campaign the ROADPOL Safety Days. Once again we proved that with the joined effort of all road user groups and through comprehensible community approach and institutional backup road fatalities can be drastically reduced. But still once again we found out there is a lot more work to be done until the sacred ZERO is achieved.


Read on to find out also how the 2023 ROADPOL Conference and Exhibition in Sofia unravelled.


Next you can find out news on the latest regular ROADPOL management reshuffling. At our latest ROADPOL meeting in Sofia we bid farewell to colleagues who have given years of their efforts to ROADPOL and welcomed the advance of the next generation.


Also, you may see how the strength of ROADPOL increased with the accession of yet another member country.


ROADPOL has not let loose on its effort to achieve police access to the computers of the future automated vehicles for the sake of effective road crash investigations. Here you will find an interesting piece on this.

Enjoy your reading!


Yours Sincerely,


Sanja Veic
