TISPOL Bulletin



Truck and Bus Enforcement Operation
22 to 28 July
This operation will see police officers carrying out a wide range of safety inspections that focus on speeding, alcohol, drugs, seatbelt use, tachograph infringements, excess weight, dangerous loading and document offences. 
In previous years, upwards of 30,000 offences have been detected during the seven days of the operation. 
We are committed to safer, more secure roads across Europe. We know that the majority of truck drivers and operators take a pride in the quality and safety of their work, and we strive to support them. 
However, there remains a proportion of less scrupulous operators, who put profits first and who will cut safety corners in the process. It is against these that our efforts are focused. We are also working to ensure a more consistent enforcement of current laws governing large goods vehicle safety.
Speed Enforcement Operation
12 to 18 August
During this operation, officers will use a number of speed detection methods across all types of road. The purpose of the operation is to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding, and to remind drivers of the benefits for all road users of driving at speeds that are both legal and appropriate. 
We urge all drivers to challenge their own attitude to speeding. Anyone who still believes that speeding is a trivial offence needs to think again. That’s because excessive or inappropriate speed has a singularly devastating impact on the safety of road users, increasing both the risk of a crash and the severity of the consequences.
It is estimated that speeding contributes to as many as one third of all crashes resulting in death, and is the most important contributory factor to road deaths and serious injuries. Similar TISPOL operation in previous years have seen more than 500,000 detections. But detecting offending drivers is not the aim; the true measure of success for this operation would be 100 per cent compliance with speed limits.
Project EDWARD videos: what does your zero look like?

Check out these two videos we have recently posted in support of Project EDWARD. If you would like to make and send us a short video, we will ensure it gets posted on social media and shared as far and wide as possible.

 
Updates from across Europe...
Germany: 2018 figures show three per cent rise in road fatalities
A total of 3,275 people died in road accidents in Germany in 2018, 95 more than the previous year, according to Germany's Federal Statistics Office. This 3% annual rise in road fatalities is the first increase after two years of decline. A further 396,000 people were injured in traffic accidents in 2018, an increase of 5,706 cases. 
Overall, the number of road deaths fell by 10.2% between 2010 and 2018. Road deaths reached a 60-year low in 2017. 
Passenger car occupants accounted for 43.5% of all road deaths in Germany last year, with 1,424 people killed in cars in 2018. A further 697 deaths were people on motorcycles, and there were 174 fatalities of occupants of goods road transport vehicles.
A total of 458 pedestrians died in road accidents in 2018, while another 77 people died in other accidents, such as bus passengers (9) and people using agricultural tractors (20).
Rural roads accounted for 24.3% of all accidents, but these accounted for 57% of all fatal accidents. Meanwhile, 6.7% of all accidents and 12.9% of all fatal accidents occurred on motorways.
 
Croatia: Parliament agrees tougher laws for traffic violators
The Croatian Parliament has agreed on amendments to the Law on Road Safety, with harsher penalties for traffic offences. Eight of the gravest offences will incur a fine of 15,000 kuna (€2025) and 20,000 kuna (€2700) instead of 5,000 kuna (€675) and 10,000 kuna (€1350) respectively as was the case until now.
These fines apply to offences such as driving in the opposite direction on motorways, exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 kph, deliberately driving through a red light, refusing to take an alcohol or drug test or driving under the influence, driving prior to obtaining or without a licence that has been suspended or revoked.  
In cases where a driver commits the same offence for the second time within three years, their licence will be suspended for at least six months and for the third and any following such offence, their licence will be revoked for at least one year.  
 
Lithuania: police gifts to drivers for obeying the law
Lithuanian police recently invited drivers to friendly “Clean driver” events in Vilnius, Kaunas, and Klaipėda. Many drivers responded to the invitation, filling up the majority of the parking spaces at the three locations. A total of 150 drivers, who have not violated the Road Traffic Rules in recent year, were awarded gifts and the title of “Clean driver”.

Drivers who participated were able to check their driving history, communicate with officers from the Lithuanian Police Department about problems or ask questions. Special gifts from “Švaros broliai” and “Bolt” were also awarded to drivers, who were responsible on the road and showed a good example to others. Every participant was treated with a 'Pols' ice cream.

Since September of last year, the start of the “Clean driver” initiative, there have been 10 events, with more than 1,300 people participating. Currently, the title of “Clean driver” has been awarded to 750 drivers. By putting the gifted sticker of the initiative on their car, the drivers make a commitment not only to continue being responsible on the road but also to encourage other road users to behave in the same way.
 
Cyprus: video promotes motorcycle safety
The Cyprus Motorcycle Rights Club (CMRC) is using a drone video to raise public awareness about road safety, particularly of motorbike and moped riders. You have choices, it says as it urges road users not to make the wrong one.
Bikers are among the most vulnerable road users in Cyprus, accounting for 10 of the 18 road fatalities so far this year.
Police recently held a two-week road safety campaign targeting motorbikes and mopeds, their third so far this year. Special emphasis was given to dangerous driving, failure to wear a helmet, breaking the speed limit and driving without a driving licence. A sp[okesperson said that in the period of 2014 to 2018, more than half (52.05%) of the motorbike and moped riders killed in road collisions were not wearing a helmet.

Denmark: arrests for drunk scooter riding
Danish police have arrested 28 people in Copenhagen for riding electric scooters while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Over a recent weekend, 24 people were caught drink-driving scooters while four were intoxicated from recreational drugs. 
The force announced the arrests on Twitter following a crackdown on the unsafe use of scooters in the Danish capital earlier this year. 
Intoxicated drivers are liable for a 2,000 krone (€260) fine. 
Electric scooters have seen a surge in popularity in Copenhagen since traffic rules were adapted to make them easier to use.
 
Finland: disturbingly high levels mobile phone use revealed in driver survey
Half of respondents admitted in a recent survey to using their phone 'at least once' while driving without utiliing hands-free equipment. This result put Finland at the top of the 20 European countries participating in the survey in this area. 
The so-called ESRA2 poll was the second round of an E-Survey of Road Users’ Attitudes (ESRA) that asked respondents to report their behaviour, attitudes and opinions about unsafe traffic practices and enforcement experiences.
"The Finns are recognised as being a nation of mobile phone users, but using them on the road is risky. A mobile phone is distracting, no matter whether you are a driver, cyclist or pedestrian," says Juha Valtonen, a research director at the Finnish Road Safety Council.
To assess self-declared behaviours in traffic, car drivers were asked the question: "Over the last 30 days, how often did you as a car driver use a hand-held mobile phone while driving?"
Just about half, 49.5 percent, answered "at least once" or more.
According to the Finnish Road Safety Council, four out of five Finns consider text messaging and social media related messaging while driving to be a serious or very serious offence.
 
Netherlands: texting cyclists will now receive fines
It is now illegal in the Netherlands to use your smartphone while cycling. Those caught texting while in the saddle will face a fine of 95 euros. The goal of this ban is to increase traffic safety by decreasing distractions.
The ban also applies to using mobile devices while operating other types of vehicles, such as cars, scooters, motorcycles, mobility scooters and trams. Drivers caught texting while using a motorised vehicle face a fine of 240 euros.
Distraction cause a large number of collisions on Dutch roads. According to police calculations, people who text while they are driving have a 25 times higher risk of crashing. 
 
And finally...
Our congratulations go to TISPOL webmaster Neil Barrett, who has just won the Stationers' Company 'Young Stationers Award' for Journalism and Communication. The Stationers' Company is one of 110 livery companies in London, founded in 1403. 
Neil is pictured below, between Company Master Trevor Fenwick and Young Stationers Chairman Ella Kahn.
Well done!

Global Fleet Champions - events


Manage road risk. Prevent crashes. Reduce pollution.

Welcome to the latest edition of the Global Fleet Champions events bulletin.

Webinar taking place next week - Protecting vulnerable
road users

Cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable groups on the roads. In the event of a crash, they will often be exposed to the full force of the impact and will face a disproportionately high risk of death or serious injury. 
Our academic and practitioner speakers will discuss:
  • how to raise awareness among employees about the dangers that vulnerable road users face and the measures that can be introduced to protect them;
  • the latest safety systems available and how they can be used to help prevent crashes and mitigate the outcomes of crashes; and
  • how engaging with local communities and lobbying local and national governments can bring about road safety change.
This FREE event, sponsored by MiX Telematics, will take place on 16 July 2019, 2pm GMT+1.

The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) published the 13th edition of PIN Annual Report pdf5, with the active contribution of NTUA, presented at the 2019 Annual PIN Conference which took place with great success on 19 June, 2019 in Brussels. According to this PIN Report, the new European figures show that the number of persons killed last year fell by just 1% and the EU target to cut road deaths in half over the decade to 2020 looks well out of reach.
Ireland was the winner of this year’s ETSC Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) award, being the second safest EU Member State in 2018, in terms of road mortality (road deaths per million inhabitants) and having moved up five places in the ranking of EU countries since 2010 when it held the 7th place. pdf5

Latest Developments

The European Commission – DG Move has published a Staff Working Document titled “EU Road Safety Policy Framework 2021-2030 – Next steps towards “Vision Zero” which includes details as to how it intends to put its Strategic Action Plan on Road Safety into practice . This Document includes a first list of Road Safety Key Performance Indicators (KPI), elaborated in close cooperation with Member States and the active contribution of NTUA, that will be monitored across the EU to underpin the target of 50% reduction in fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. The list (including indicators like vehicle safety, seat belt and helmet wearing rate, speed compliance and post-crash care) is a living document that will be developed further over time, but first data can be gathered on this basis from next year.  pdf5

The European Commission – DG Move has published a study titled “Sustainable Transport Infrastructure Charging and Internalisation of Transport Externalities” which aims to assess the extent to which existing policies internalise the external and infrastructure costs of transport and to discuss ways by which further internalisation could be achieved. As input for this assessment, the infrastructure and external costs of the various transport modes are estimated and a comprehensive overview of transport taxes and charges applied in the various countries is provided.  According to the study results, the most important cost category is accident costs equating to 29% of the total external costs, which on the contrary of most other costs it is not targeted by any taxes or charges aiming its reduction.   pdf5

Road Safety is acknowledged as a priority issue in the EuroMed partner countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia). However, the collection of credible road safety data is a major challenge. In this context, the recent EuroMed Report, which was launched with the active contribution of NTUA, consists of provision of technical assistance on setting up road safety reliable, harmonized and comparable data collection systems at the EuroMed Partner Countries and sharing at regional level. The Final Report concludes that the adoption of common definitions for road crash variables and values strongly depends on the successful implementation of basic definitions (accident, road, casualty severity) and the systematic and complete reporting of crashes and casualties. pdf5

The 1st newsletter of the Horizon 2020 project Levitate was recently released highlighting the key activities of the first 6 months of the project. It contains an inspiring interview with Rune Elvik, Senior research officer at TØI, suggesting that any progress in Connected and Automated Transport cannot eliminate the human factor. Furthermore, it highlights the results from the first Workshop of the Levitate Stakeholder Group in Gothenburg on May 2019 and of the respective presentation of Levitate project at the scientific Workshop organized by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) on ‘Digitalisation and Road Safety Research’ in Athens on May 2019.

A paper titled “Analysis of driver behaviour through smartphone data: The case of mobile phone use while driving” authored by Eleonora Papadimitriou, Anastasia Argyropoulou, Dimitris Tselentis, and George Yannis is now published in Safety Science. The aim of this paper is to explore driving behaviour during mobile phone use on the basis of detailed driving analytics collected by smartphone sensors from OSeven Telematics. The data came from a sample of one hundred drivers (18,850 trips) during a naturalistic driving experiment over four months. The results suggest that mobile phone use while driving may be accurately predicted by the model in more than 70% of casesdoi

A Diploma Thesis titled “Mobility and Road Safety in European cities” was recently presented by Dimitrios Giagkou, focusing on the impact of mobility characteristics on road safety in European cities. For this analysis, various international databases (CARE, UITP, Eurostat) were exploited with data on road accident fatalities, demographics and mobility characteristics of 25 European cities in 2012. Generalized Linear Models were developed for both the total number of fatalities and for specific subcategories too. The results led to the conclusion that more public transport capacity offered, more cycle trips and fewer motorcycles lead to a reduction in the number of fatalities in urban road accidents. Moreover, it was found that denser road network, higher population density and higher GDP per capita are correlated with fewer fatalities in urban road accidents. pdf5 ppt5
Point of View

An interview with Professor George Yannis at the inSCIght on-line magazine of Hasselt University
How did it all start?
Everything started with my studies in civil and transportation engineering back in Athens, and later on in Paris. There I developed my passion for applied transportation science and the great social as well as economic value it holds to our society. It’s the complex and challenging task of planning, designing, developing and operating an efficient, safe and environmentally friendly transportation system to fit everyone’s needs that have kept me wanting more, year after year.
The entire interview is available here.
