The Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects (MTIP) on 22nd December 2022 published a White Paper on the establishment of a Transport Safety Investigative Commission for feedback from stakeholders by 15th February 2023. The MTIP is the Ministry responsible for road safety in Malta mainly through its structures Transport Malta and Infrastructure Malta.
Doctors for Road Safety (D4RS) is a voluntary non-governmental organisation (NGO) with a mission to place Road Safety firmly on the National agenda by raising awareness, educating peers and public and advocating with relevant stakeholders. D4RS was established in 2017 (VO 1172), and has been very active with education, advocacy and events aimed towards its vision of zero deaths on Maltese roads.
D4RS sent its response with feedback to the white paper within the prescribed closing date. It is hoped that this process will yield the much needed changes to start reversing the negative trend in road safety on Maltese roads.
