The awareness campaign “Don`t let this happen” represents Kosovo in the European Conference on Road Safety

Brussels, 17-18 November 2016

The video clip “Phone use while driving” which is part of the awareness campaign ““Don`t let this happen”” is selected among the many campaigns conducted by various countries of Europe to be represented at the European Road Safety Campaigns Conference, which was held on 17 and 18 November 2016 in Brussels.

Mr. Muhamed Krasniqi, the founder of AMRKS, in this conference besides presenting this campaign and its purpose, simultaneously presented other activities on road safety conducted in Kosovo in recent years.

The two-day conference was opened by Mr. Antonio Avenoso, Executive Director of the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC). The meeting was also attended by Mr. Herman De Croo, Chairman of ETSC and the former Minister of Transport in the Belgian government.

In these two days of the conference there were quite interesting campaigns presented by representatives of institutions and organizations of several European countries, such as: the Flemish Ministry of Mobility and Public Works, the European Survey of Road users’ safety Attitudes (ESRA), the Belgian Road Safety Institute (BRSI), the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge (VSV), the Austrian Road Safety Board, the Finnish Road Safety Council (Liikenneturva), the Danish Road Safety, the Belgian Road Safety Institute, the Walloon Agency for Road Safety (AWSR), the Kosovo Association of Motorization (AMRKS), the Norwegian Council for Road Safety, the Icelandic Transport Authority, the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge (VSV), the National Council for traffic safety on the roads in Macedonia, the Parents of road traffic victims from Belgium, etc.

It was an honour that in the presence of all these officials and representatives of these countries (which invest heavily in various activities to improve road safety), the work of #AMRKS Kosovo (a country that does not invest at all on road safety) was highly appreciated.
