ETSC: "Cuts to police enforcement is damaging for road safety"


Cuts to police enforcement across Europe is damaging for road safety. This is the conclusion in two reports published by the European Road Safety Council (ETSC) on June 20th. Antonio Avenoso, Executive Director of the European Transport Safety Council said that cuts to police enforcement are doubly damaging: “Fewer dangerous drivers are caught, and overall perception of the risk of being caught also decreases”.
