TISPOL is an organisation committed to reducing the number of casualties on Europe’s roads and increasing road safety awareness across the continent. By use of research, relevant intelligence and information, the organisation is active in road policing and is made up of the traffic police forces of Europe.
Although TISPOL are active in road policing, they also support the use of road safety education and campaigns to reduce the number of road casualties and to promote a healthy road safety culture. A number of campaigns and operations are run by the organisation including the recent speed enforcement operation which is held over a week and uses various speed detection methods to identify high-risk areas and to enforce action on those caught speeding. A recent drink-drive operation saw TISPOL conduct breath tests on motorists Europe-wide in order to enforce action and raise awareness of the issue. Enforcement combined with education can make a huge impact on drivers and can show the consequences to other drivers who may be at risk of driving dangerously.
Campaigns and road safety enforcement
Although many drivers are aware that they should be driving safely, they may ignore the rules making enforcement action necessary. In addition, enforcement action from organisations like TISPOL can take dangerous drivers off the road completely making the roads safer for more careful drivers. Adopting simple road safety attitudes such as keeping under the speed limit, avoiding alcohol and drugs and avoiding distractions like mobile phones can prevent a casualty on the road. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that is someone else’s fault, you may be able to take legal action to compensate you for your injuries.
