Partnership Programme helps Moldova

14 October 2014

Road crash data for 2012-2014 just released by the Municipal Transport Department of Moldova’s capital city, Chisinau, shows how effective local partnerships can reduce road injuries and fatalities across all modes of public transport.

Annual data for 2012 and 2013 shows:

• a 49% decrease in accidents on public road transport
• an 86% reduction in fatalities
• a 52% reduction in injuries.

Data for the first 7 months of 2014 shows a continuing strong decline in casualties. If present trends continue, overall road incidents on Chisinau public transport will see a 65% decrease compared with 2012 and a 31% decrease compared to 2013.

This well-managed internal programme was inspired by work done by EASST - an independentUK-registered charity working in Eastern Europe and South Caucasus to facilitate cross-border projects on sustainable transport and road safety.
