Desirous to facilitate the travelling and enhance safety of road users, Gdańsk Transport Company, the Voivodship Police Headquarters in Gdańsk, and the Police headquarters from Świecie and Grudziądz, are organising a Safety Week on the A1 AmberOne Motorway managed by the Company a week before the onset of the vacation season, i.e. from 19 to 25 June 2017. The Safety Week initiative will involve distribution of leaflets specially prepared for the drives, containing basic information on the fundamentals of travelling safe, i.e. how to carry the luggage safely and how to read the mileage posts or keep the adequate distance between the vehicles. The manual will be distributed from the exit gates over the Safety Week. It is also available for downloading here: gtc_wakacyjnepodrozowanie_2
The actions making up the Safety Week will include Police speed checks and technical checks of the vehicles.
Moreover, toll collectors will present each driver who has sped on the A1 AmberOne Motorway with a leaflet informing him/her of the broken speed limit, appended with previous years’ accident statistics. In this way, we want to remind the drivers that there are speed limits binding on the motorway and that we should follow them. The figures speak for themselves, and quoting after the Police data speeding is the prime cause of most incidents on the road.
