A continuous 24-hour speed control will take place in Croatia tomorrow, modelled after TISPOL’s action. Dubrovnik-Neretva County Police also joined in and will control the speed from 6 am tomorrow until 6 am on Thursday. The goal of the action is, apart from the repressive, to act as preventive to all the drivers, which is why this action is announced in advance.
The action will be carried out on a large number of locations. Police Administration called on citizens to propose speed monitoring locations and selected the most suitable ones. All available devices will be used, and the action will include the maximum possible number of police officers. In order to cover as wide a territory as possible, the monitoring locations will be changed every two to three hours.
Speed is the most common cause of traffic accidents, often those with the most severe consequences. In the first eight months of 2017, in the Republic of Croatia, out of a total of 216 people killed in traffic accidents, 81 or 37.5 percent died due to improper and unsuitable speeds. The results of the action will be announced on Friday, October 19th , on the website of the Police Administration.
