EASST supports the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety 2011-2020
The Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM) is an NGO created in 1998 with the goal to develop motoring, technical road assistance service and motor tourism. Since 1999, the АСМ has been a member of the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT) and Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) which includes more than 100 motor clubs and tourist associations around the world.
EASST’s work in Moldova began in 2009 with the launch of a Make Roads Safe Campaign with the ACM, EASST Chairman Lord Dubs, and senior members of the Moldovan government hosted by the World Bank Country Office. This led to the creation of a new National Road Safety Council chaired by the Prime Minister and involving key ministers and the traffic police. The new Council produced a National 5-Year Plan to improve road safety in Moldova. Former President of the ACM, Serghei Diaconu, was appointed Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs in 2013. With Mr. Diaconu, the ACM is working to reduce the number of road deaths in Moldova and improve road safety across the country via a multitude of projects and campaigns.
