All our publications cover different issues with regards to traffic safety. One thing is to observe best practices all over the world, but later we need to clear all activities regarding those issues in our city. Therefore, the City Traffic Safety Programme was created.

Despite the fact that accident statistics are worrying and Łódź is considered to be the most dangerous city in Poland in terms of traffic where the biggest number of accidents per resident is the highest in Poland, any activites aiming at making the infrastructure better are implemented very slowly. Unfortunately, for a very long time Łódź couldn't count on the support of local politicians. But now it has changed.

This publication is fully about how Łódź implemented a City Traffic Safety Programme. Works on the programme took four years - it started with the resolution in 2011 with the last step on September 16, 2015, when the City Council agree to proceed with the idea. 

The initiator of the programme in Łódź was Tomasz Kacprzak, the head of the City Council in Łódź and the vice-president of the Voievodship Traffic Centre in Łódź. Therefore, we asked him to speak on the matter and get involved in consulting activities in Gdańsk (details on the consultations can be found in the 10th issue of our publication).

We also publish statements of the Road and Transportation Authorities President, Grzegorz Nita and the head of the city commision with regards to traffic in the City Council run by Bartosz Domaszewicz. Both men were present at the City Council meeting, were the project was agreed on.

We encourage you to get acquainted with "Inna droga - miejski program BRD", available at ISSUU.COM
