55-years of Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Association (PZM)

This year celebrates 55 years anniversary of the foundation of Polski Zwiazek Motorowy (PZM), the main non-government organization in Poland. Its priority task in the activity is not only a development of moto - tourism and rights protection of motorized people but improvement of road safety in Poland as well. PZM is the federation of associations and the Polish federation of motor sports. There are 306 clubs and automobile clubs from the whole country affiliated to PZM which is one of the most important social partners for the State administration in the framework of its statutory tasks. From its beginning PZM is a member of FIA. Our success for over a half of a century of continued activity is based on knowledge and commitment of our active members, care about education of communication among children and teenagers, road rescue and first aid trainings, driving courses and further improvement of driving skills. Now the project can actively participate in works of international organizations taking care about road safety, like GRSP, AIT/ FIA (5th Directive on car insurance, directives on driving licenses, control of sobriety and speed). Moreover the project takes part in international road safety programs, specially cooperating with European Union countries, for example Polish Swedish cooperation (Karlskrona) - integration of activities with the Baltic countries, Polish - German (ADAC), Polish Dutch (ANWB) - exchange of experience , standardization of methods of activity. The jubilee which the project celebrate the becoming of an opportunity to recapitulate activity of the association, let me present some of the most important achievements of those 55 years and future problems and tasks which need the solutions and today are the priority ones for the PZM. I am convinced that thanks to participation in the conference on Road Safety on 4 Continents we will be allowed to use the experience of other countries and new directions for our activity will be shown.
