The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) and the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Latvia held a high-level debate on road safety.
State Secretary Kaspars Ozoliņš gave the keynote speech. The debate focused on measures needed to improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, and to tackle driver fatigue. Participants – government representatives, local authorities, police, researchers, NGOs and other stakeholders – were invited to react to the presentations of good practices implemented in other parts of Europe.
