Romanian and Hungarian police will act based on a joint plan to assure safety of road traffic, given a recent increase in the number of car accidents involving Romanian citizens in the neighbouring country, police chief Liviu Popa said, according to Mediafax.
Popa told a press conference on Friday that a first joint meeting of police officials from both states will be held on Wednesday in Artand, Hungary. The joint measures will include an increase in traffic checks by police and other authorities in the field, Popa added.
In the last six months, 22 Romanian citizens were killed in three severe accidents in Hungary. The most recent accident was reported on November 11, when five died and 27 were injured after a Romanian minibus crashed into a Slovakian truck.
