There is no need for a new road safety authority if each existing unit performs its functions, traffic safety expert and former traffic police head Aleksi Stratiev told Focus Radio
. He said the existing committee on road safety has proved ineffective over the years. “It is interesting what tasks could be assigned to this new agency if it is created. Anyway, the laws regulate the organisation. The relevant ministries and their responsibilities are explicitly mentioned in the law on road traffic. For me, control and responsibility on the part of those institutions is all that matters. The Ministry of Regional Development must be responsible for problems with the roads, the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications must be responsible for the vehicles’ preparation and technical condition and the Ministry of Interior must be responsible for control on the roads,” he said. The expert recommends developing a new national strategy on road safety and using technology to improve road traffic control.
