Countries join for health day

A NUMBER of European countries has taken part in World Health Day, which aims to highlight the fact that road traffic accidents result in the deaths of 1.2 million people every year.

Held yesterday, it was organised by the World Health Organisation, which has called for action to raise awareness of the problem.

As part of the campaign, TISPOL, which is made up of senior representatives from traffic police departments across Europe, is calling on European company car drivers to wear a seat belt.

TISPOL president Ad Hellemons said: 'I find it so unbelievable, that so many car occupants still do not wear their seatbelts. Many are killed or seriously injured because of this.'
