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).
Describe the characteristics of your target audience
Our target audience will be mainly young people and children, because this category is estimated to be more at risk.
How did you disseminate/are you disseminating results or how did you promote/are you promoting your initiative?
We will disseminate these results through social media(facebook, twitter, instagram)and certainly via local and national radio, television and newspapers.
How did you evaluate/are you evaluating the success of your action?
We will check the degree of satisfaction of the participants as well as of the organisers and managers. In addition to this, we will check the degree of compliance with the initial plan(our initial plan is to educate and train as many young people as we can and reduce traffic safety offences , consequently to reduce road accidents)
Who carried/carries out the evaluation activities?
When did/will you carry out the evaluation?
Before, after and continuous monitoring
Please list the indicators you use to measure success
Reduce the number of road accidents and victims
Decrease the number of traffic safety offences, especially the most serious ones (seatbelt use, speeding, alcohol and drug risk behaviours, etc.), because when there are fewer offences that means that drivers are more careful and they have obtained road
Please describe the evaluation tools you use (i.e. surveys, interviews, focus groups, etc.)
Statistics concerning the road accidents
Participants’ and Organizers’ interviews
Society’s and media’s positive comments.
