Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski sent the Letter to Niš Police Department in which she asked  for an overview of the needs of the Traffic Police in Niš in the field of traffic safety as soon as possible. She requested a list of necessary equipment and possible locations where the stationary equipment would be placed, as well as a list of “black spots” on city streets with a proposal of concrete measures for the prevention of traffic accidents. The latest events in Niš, in which two of our fellow citizens, including a twelve-year-old boy, died in a car accident on Mediana Boulevard, are the reason for the urgent reaction of the city and the police and for raising cooperation to a higher level. The letter states that the city fulfills the obligations from the Strategy of Traffic Safety on the Roads in Niš for period 2017-2021 and the Action Plan for the implementation of the Strategy, but that it is ready to, if necessary, immediately complement them in accordance with possible changes in indicators and priorities in the field of raising the level of traffic safety in the city. According to Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski some of the priorities were defined at the recent joint meeting of the city leadership and the Head of the Niš Police Department, and if necessary, the city and the police will launch joint initiatives with the competent republic authorities. According to the Mayor our common goal is to achieve a high level of traffic safety, which is in the interest of every citizens, i.e., traffic participants individually.
