The focus of the exhibition was to provide members of the public with advice on various aspects of safety and to forge new partnership to promote safety generally. The ACM and ProtectMD Foundation participated as advocates for road safety, providing visitors with materials and advice to the public on how to stay safe on the roads. This action forms part of their constant effort to reduce road traffic collisions and death in Moldova.

The exhibition’s opening ceremony was attended by the Minister of Internal Affairs, Dorin Recean, who encouraged those promoting safety.  Learn more:
