Today, we are pleased to announce the start of the ROADPOL Safety Days.
The ROADPOL Safety Days are the successor to our “Project EDWARD” campaign, which has been running since 2016.
We hope to be able to draw your interest in our campaign.
Heinz Albert Stumpen
ROADPOL General Secretary
The ROADPOL Safety Days are the successor of our successful TISPOL campaign "Project EDWARD", which started in 2016. The ROADPOL Safety Days also aim to reduce the number of fatal traffic accidents - to ZERO.
From now on, the ROADPOL Safety Days will always take place at the same time as the European Commission's European Mobility Week from 16 to 22 September.
Our member countries determine when their national ROADPOL Safety Day or ROADPOL Safety Days take place during this week.
Each year, a country hosts the main event, which takes place together with the annual ROADPOL autumn conference.
In 2020, Germany will host the ROADPOL Safety Days. The main event will take place on September 16 in Mainz.
The European Commission is again fully supporting our campaign this year.
Many thanks to Matthew Baldwin and his great team in Brussels!
You want to know what it is about?
An average of 70 people dies on the roads every day across Europe. Based on Vision Zero, we want to reduce this number to zero at least one day a year – on September 16.
Therefore, we call on all road user to rethink their behavior on the road. We would like to show you how you can reduce dangers in road traffic and increase your own safety, whether you are traveling by car, motorcycle, bicycle, e-scooter or as a pedestrian.
