Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Sept 25, 2020 – No road fatalities were recorded in Croatia on this year’s Day Without a Road Death, which put Croatia among 16 member states of ROADPOL, the European roads policing network, which have successfully achieved the goal of this campaign, the Ministry of the Interior said in a statement on Friday.

“Stay alive and save lives!” was the slogan of this year’s ROADPOL Safety Days campaign, conducted across Europe from 16 to 22 September. The purpose of the campaign was to reduce the number of road deaths and its focus was on the Day Without a Road Death, which was held on 17 September, the statement said.

As many as 16 countries achieved the set goal, recording no road fatalities on that day. Apart from Croatia, these were Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland and Portugal. However, 33 people were killed in road accidents in other member states.

Despite the current situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, ROADPOL members managed to organise 336 events in 18 countries where police officers and public figures appealed to the public to observe traffic rules.

In Croatia, between 14 and 20 September, police stepped up checks for the unlawful use of mobile phones and other electronic device while driving, reporting 1,373 offences involving the use of mobile phones and 17 offences involving the use of other electronic devices.
