Police officials indicated that, for 24 hours, speed detection systems would record all speeding violation regardless of their severity. 20 other European countries are participating in this one-day action as well.

Events like these bring results, according to police representatives. When a similar effort was announced for the first time last year, not a single person was killed in traffic events on that day, and nobody died in traffic accidents during the first week of September, during which the event was held, either.
