  1. I dont think these accidents have anything to do with texting, seatbelts. I know the E-75 very well, as I've driven on it hundreds of times, both during the day and at night. Notice the times of these accidents? Both during the middle of night (3am and 4am). These were probablly fatigued drivers that have been driving straight from Turkey/Greece and trying to make it back home to western Europe. The E-75 is extremely dangerous from the southern border (Tabanovce) up until Leskovac, where it turns into a two lane autobahn. Driving anywhere in the Balkans is a challenge. Shame people had to die, nonetheless.

  2. Seatbelts, alcohol, bad roads, poor driving, use of mobile phones, people texting while driving....

    Too much of it in Serbia. Never mind harmonizing with EU practice with roads.
    The only way is a drastic campaign / crackdown which forces people into changing their habits.

    Once those habits have changed then EU harmonization becomes possible, until then its useless.
