On Sunday (May 21) at 11:30 a.m., a national protest organized by parents who have lost their children in road accidents will take place. This was announced by Diana Rusinova from the European Center for Transport Policies. The starting point of the protest is in front of the National Assembly building. The procession will pass through "Orlov" Bridge, and the traffic will be stopped for a short time. After that, it will continue in front of the Ministry of Interior building.

"I call on all our colleagues, partners, friends and like-minded people to support our efforts to finally put the topic of road traffic injuries on the agenda of the institutions and the parliament," wrote Rusinova. She also invites anyone who feels sympathetic and believes that there is a very serious and chronic problem with road safety in Bulgaria to attend the protest.

In the latest serious incident at the beginning of this week, two young Bulgarians were hit and killed while crossing a pedestrian path in Sofia.
