Road Safety Enforcement

A major killer of pedestrians and passengers is speed and drink-driving. Across the EASST region equipment, training and strategies of the road police are in great need of improvement.

With the support of the UK’s National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS), EASST has conducted a pilot programme to test whether similar courses would assist law enforcement in Moldova, where driver attitudes, circumstances and the road climate are very different. This was the first time that NDORS has approved delivery of its courses outside the UK.
