In Belgium you are more likely to die in a road traffic accident than in two-thirds of other member states of the EU. If Belgian roads were as safe as the UK, for example, 450 accident victims would still be alive today.
And yet the police and radio stations, both commercial and publicly funded, systematically collude in helping dangerous drivers to avoid detection for speeding. It is symptomatic of a culture which tolerates irresponsible driving.
That is why, today, the EUCG and advocacy group Parents d’Enfants Victimes de la Route have issued an open letter calling on politicians, media outlets and the police for an immediate end to this unethical and dangerous practice.
