Slovenia's Traffic Safety
Ljubljana, 17 January - BOARD/PREVENTION/TRAFFIC/EDUCATION/RESEARCH
For the first time after thirty years, the number of persons who lost their lives in road accidents in Slovenia is lower than 400. In spite of this we should not be too euphoric, as there are still numerous things to be done to guarantee a higher level of traffic safety, said Ivan Winkler, the head of the Slovene Prevention and Traffic Education Board. He added that a letter was sent to the Parliament Speaker Janez Podobnik Friday, calling on the National Assembly to pass the law on traffic safety as early as possible. According to Winkler, the number of death casualties in road accidents would be even lower if the above-mentioned law and the national programme to increase the traffic safety were passed. At the news conference, the results of the European research of the traffic safety Sartre 2 (Slovenia was one the countries to participate in it) were also presented.
