Road Safety in Croatia at High Level

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, September 19, 2018 – The Croatian Automobile Club, the acronym of which in Croatian is HAC, on Tuesday outlined models for the development of the protection infrastructure on Croatian roads and risk assessments for the A3 and A4 motorways within this year’s European Mobility Week, and underscored the high level of Croatian road safety.

The head of the HAK road traffic safety department Krešimir Viduka said that the aims of this year’s European Mobility Week were the development of cleaner, more fuel-efficient modes of mobility in urban centres and traffic safety. “By developing projects for that purpose, we improve the infrastructure of our roads, and in the long-term it means the strengthening of quality and safety for all traffic participants,” Viduka said in Zagreb.

Professor Marko Ševrović from the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of Zagreb University spoke about an analysis of risks along the A3 and A4 motorway sections that are busiest during tourist seasons.

The findings of the analysis show that the sections are extremely or very safe, however, additional investments of 60 million kuna into the most problematic segments would bring long-term savings in the amount of 500 million kuna, in addition to the saving of many lives of participants in traffic.

European Mobility Week started on Monday and this year the main theme is “Mixing transport modes to improve quality of life”.

“Yesterday the European Commission launched for the 17th time EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK, its flagship campaign that runs from 16–22 September annually with the aim to improve quality of life by promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport,” according to information released on the campaign’s web site.

“Over 2,400 towns and cities from 50 countries will hold events to mark this year’s celebration, giving people the opportunity to explore the role of mobility in their daily lives and to experiment with clean transport modes. EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK culminates in the trademark car-free day.”

On Wednesday, 19 September, the campaign will also include the third edition of the European day without a road death, which aims at raising awareness on road safety.
