- About EASST
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. Some police forces lack the most essential equipment for basic enforcement. Others lack training, and almost none undertake multi-agency strategic planning.
Under the auspices of the EU TRACECA Road Safety II programme, Serghei Diaconu has been training other police forces in successful enforcement strategies in four EASST partner countries. Moldova, in particular, has seen a steep decline in road casualties as a result.
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.
24th March 2017 New Joint International Policing Hub hears about EASST's police reform initiatives in Moldova, and how working hand in hand with police has reduced road casualties.
14th December 2016 EASST partner, the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM), report 21% decline in the number of road crashes involving taxis.
