What problem did you address/are you addressing? 
We wish to contribute in road safety in our region, our country and of course in the European Union. The main problem is the road fatalities concerning young people, and especially people between the age of 15-29.The fatal crashes take place mostly during the weekends and holidays. Education is the key word for us. On the one hand we intend to implement and develop the road safety culture (we want to educate and train as many young people as we can ) and on the other hand we aim at increasing traffic controls and applying the law enforcement.
What are your objectives? 
Raise awareness of general public about the most important causes of road accidents( speed, alcohol drinking, using mobile phone while driving).

Our target audience will be mainly young people and children, because this category is estimated to be more at risk.
