12th Technical Committee on Road Safety and 4th Western Balkans Road Safety Observatory

With today’s meeting in Brussels, our road safety activities will be wrapped up for the year 2022. The meeting is a good opportunity for the region to gain knowledge from the expertise of the European Commission, in particular in the area of the Acquis and to reflect on the progress done in the past period.

In the opening words by the Transport Community, Director Matej Zakonjsek acknowledged the progress achieved and asked for more effort and results in 2023 in order to meet the Road Safety objectives.

Representative from the European Commission and Head of Road Safety Unit, Claire Depre highlighted the importance of holistic approach and congratulated the Western Balkans representatives for being positive example of including all relevant stakeholders in building a safe system for all road users.
