Prime Minister recalled the already implemented obligation of "zip merging" and "emergency corridor". He also discussed new proposals, including pedestrians priority at crossings, the speed limit of 50 km/h in built-up areas 24 hours a day and the risk of losing one's driving licence when exceeding 50 km/h.

He also announced the establishment of a fund that would enable additional investment in road safety infrastructure such as pedestrian crossings, roundabouts and speed bumps.

So far, thanks to the measures taken by the government, many kilometres of expressways and motorways have been built and more are currently under construction. In 2019, over 300 km of national roads were commissioned.
