Road policing workshops: Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia programme (TRACECA)

18 November 2015

Ongoing professional development for traffic police is critical to updating skills and knowledge of best practice and emerging technology. In September, 150 traffic police from the Europe Caucasus Asia region took part in Train the Trainer (ToT) workshops to upskill in critical areas and to disseminate that training further in eight beneficiary countries—Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

The workshops provided skills development for traffic police in evidence-based, outcome-focused and data-led policing for mid-level traffic police

Save Kids Lives campaign

9 November 2015

Everyday 500 children are killed their way to or from school. They are among the most vulnerable road users, and the risk of death and injury is unacceptably high. This year on ‘International Walk to School Day,’ on 7 October, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) released a new film, directed by Luc Besson, in support of road safety for children and the #SaveKidsLives campaign.

The film serves as an emotional and powerful wake-up call that action must be taken to address the dangers that children around the world must contend with every day just to get to and from school.
