    13. 13. Traffic law amendments • • • Mandatory use of seat belts is only Front side since 2010. The fine is 25 US Dollars.98% in front seat. We are working to change law for rear seats. Children sit in front seats, and some of them without seat belts. We are doing research on this topic and soon PfRS will start working with Parliament of Georgia for change law. Wearing helmet is mandatory for motorists, fine is 6US Dollars. For bicyclists, helmet is not mandatory. In the urban areas, the maximum speed is 60 km/h. But it is possible to over speed with 15 km/h. Fine is 60 US Dollars.
    14. 14. Findings :  Public Agencies of Transport, Roads, Police, Health, in Georgia does work;  But all their intervention is fragmented uncoordinated;  Lack of monitoring of results and lack of a strong, shared focus on future results and targeted actions; and
    15. 15. Shortcomings:  Lack of road user awareness and road safety culture on major road traffiIc injury risks factors;  Majority of Georgian vehicles are 16-20 year old – no life-saving technologies and reducing emissions;  No governmental agency is currently actively promoting road safety as a core responsibility across Government and society.
    16. 16. Targets Improving road safety management and enforcement; Improve road infrastructure and vehicles safety; Improve awareness and driving culture of the car drivers and all road users;
