On 19 and 20 October 2000 in Luxembourg, CIECA organised the above seminar in close cooperation with the Ministry of Transport in Luxembourg.
The seminar addressed key issues related to coach safety (safe vehicle, safe driver, safe road environment) in an attempt to reduce the number of serious coach accidents that have taken place over the last few years.
Participants included representatives from ministries and road safety institutes, driving schools and examination centres, professional federations and coach/tour companies.
The intensive programme provided a strong blend of theory and practice over the 2-day period: the first day looked at analyses and solutions related to traffic safety and problems which professional drivers encounter at the workplace. The second day was spent at a driver training centre where participants could experience the effects of difficult driving circumstances first-hand.
