National Road Safety Day on 21st of October throughout Croatia

By  Oct 20, 2019

Parliament on Friday designated October 21 National Road Traffic Safety Day in order to raise awareness of the safety of all participants in traffic.

MPs supported by a majority vote a joint motion by the domestic policy and maritime affairs committees which initially asked that October 21 be observed as National Day Without Mobile Phones in Traffic, but eventually accepted the government's arguments that it be designated National Road Traffic Safety Day.

The government agreed that mobile phones are a big traffic safety problem but noted that their use is only one of four factors affecting safety, the others being speed, alcohol and not wearing a seat belt.

Parliament also endorsed reports on the execution of the state budget and application of fiscal rules in 2018 and the first half of 2019 as well as the 2018 report on the work of the Croatian Pension Insurance Institute.
