In the presence of H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince, Mr André Muhlberger, the Director of Public Safety, gave his New Year address today to many prominent figures gathered together in the Charlotte Casiraghi hall of honour. On this occasion, he reviewed the activities undertaken in 2011, in terms of services relating to public order, protection, safety of persons and property, as well as road safety.
Particular focus was placed on road traffic accidents occurring last year and "on the sense of individual responsibility that each of us needs to demonstrate when using the public highway, the necessary precautions and the strict observance of traffic regulations, especially when driving in an urban environment where obstacles can very quickly appear".
