The planning of the visibility campaign started in May 2015 by the Nógrád County Accident Prevention Committee, commissioned by the National Accident Prevention Committee.
The main lines along which the prevention activity should be carried out were drawn up, followed by an action plan, which contained the time schedule of the campaign, too.
The main aim is to prevent those accidents which happen due to not adequate visibility, in order to protect pedestrians and cyclists.
Where can pedestrians and cyclists find the high-visibility vests?
In small villages, settlements where there are very poorly lit roads, visibility vest should be available until the late evening hours.
The only places which are open until late at night are such pubs and clubs, therefore they are obviously the best spots to distribute the vests.
Police Station selected – call for participation – drawing up the action plan – finding the possible alcohol-serving places – contacting them – agreement.
Involving the local Civil Guard associations – they should contact the owners of the local alcohol-serving places – they can later check the use of the vests and provide for replacments. Police Station of Szécsény selected – 13 settlements – 32 alcohol-serving places.
Image designing: got the „Krétarajz„ (Chalk drawing) fancy name due to the chalk drawn human figure representing a run-down pedestrian, which appears on the posters. Designing two types of posters, logo, slogan : ”Visible protection”. Having the visibility vests produced with logo printing.
Campaign start in the local media on 1st October 2015. Campaign refeshing – blowing the chalk figure with fluorescent paint on the road, which calls the attention not only of pedestrians and cyclists, but also of other vehicles’ drivers, too, that they can expect pedestrians to appear on the given road section! The campaign is always refreshed with new elements.
