During the visit to this centre, Brnabic congratulated the public road company Putevi Srbije on the modernisation and digitalisation of traffic monitoring, explaining that the Centre processes all data from surveillance cameras on the highway and toll stations and that it manages all signalisation on highways in Serbia.
She pointed out that the centre will also enable the speed of vehicles to be checked and data on their license plates and the average speed at which they were moving on the highway.
The Prime Minister pointed out that the charger for electric cars, which was also put into operation today at the toll station Belgrade, will contribute to the reduction of air pollution in the country.
We will continue to develop this centre of Putevi Srbije. I expect that this will result in larger revenues into the budget through fines for oversized transport, she stated and added that a large number of trucks are oversized and that they are excessively destroying our roads.
She said that these are mostly trucks from abroad which are in transit and by fining those drivers we will show that the laws are respected here.
Minister of Environmental Protection Irena Vujovic welcomed today's commissioning of the charger for electric cars, noting that this is one of the ways to reduce air pollution.
Vujovic recalled that the state is giving subsidies to citizens for the purchase of electric cars and underlined that the fight against air pollution is a priority for the Serbian government and the line ministry.
She said that the competition for the allocation of funds for the replacement of boiler rooms and afforestation has been closed and that the first contracts will be signed in next ten days.
The Minister said that 30 local self-governments applied for the replacement of boiler rooms and the same number for afforestation, whereas eight local self-governments applied for replacement of private fireplaces.
