In April, a phone number will be activated to provide 24/7 emergency assistance to Attica drivers.
Number 1544 will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The traffic control center of the Attica region promises to activate it in April. The four-digit easy-to-remember number is designed to provide emergency assistance to drivers in case of emergency.
You can also call if the driver wants to report any problem on the roads of the region, for example about:
- lack of signs or road markings;
- non-working traffic light;
- damage to the road surface;
- the presence of foreign objects on the road, spilled oil or debris;
- a tree that has fallen on the roadway, etc.
The installation of 3,000 small signs on traffic light masts on the central roads of Attica, with the telephone number 1544, is currently ongoing. They are equipped with a modern QR code so that pedestrians can also connect to the site of the region from their mobile phone in order to quickly and easily access information about safe driving.
Information on signs is planned to be posted in English so that guests of Attica can be informed about the existence and operation of the line. On all major roads, 110 traffic signs with the number 1544 have been installed.
Nearly completed, says newsbeast.gr, call center staff training in traffic control center. In the very near future, within a maximum of several days, technical work on the creation of a multi-channel number will be completed. This will allow the center to serve several lines at the same time. The phone number will be handed over on April 15 for use during the creation of an online smartphone application. Giorgis Patoulis, governor of Attica, says:
“The new four-digit telephone number 1544 complements a number of measures we have taken to improve road safety, such as: special vans on Kifissos Avenue to facilitate the work of drivers, repairs on main roads, electrical lighting upgrades, maintenance of the central islands, new LED traffic lights and direct intervention to eliminate hazards”.
