Jeannot Mersch, President of European Federation of Road Traffic Victims
He worked as diploma sound engineer with Luxemburg Philharmonic Orchestra. In October 2009 he chooses to retire from his professional job to have so more time as volunteer for road safety and as post crash response advocate.
The reason for this decision was this tragic event on 5.2 1993, when he lost his 12 years old daughter on her way to school near the zebra crossing to the bus stop by a speeding hit and run Van driver .
He then immediately joined Luxemburg’s Road Victim Association AVR in 1994, where he has been president from 1999 till 2014. He joined the board of the FEVR in 2004 and was elected president in October 2010.
Jeannot regularly travels to meet victim associations and is frequently invited to speak on road safety and post-crash response matters at conferences and seminars.
His vision is the target with no more deaths and serious injuries especially for vulnerable road users.
