As the summer passed away, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has ended their social campaign which encouraged young pupils to share their drawings on how they imagine a safety reflector which could save their lives in roads. With a beginning of a new academic year, winners of the contest have been awarded and reflectors based on their drawings are now being presented and will soon be available for more than 15 000 road users.
Every year more than 6 million passengers travel by intercity buses to reach their homes, works or holiday destinations. Only a small part of them use seat belts – to be more specific, only 13,9 % of passengers do follow safety instructions regarding seat belts. Lack of knowledge surely is not the main factor because more than 62% of travelers do know that they must wear seat belts.
With such a worrying trend, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has encouraged and invited carriers and bus station managers to sign a “Promotion of seat belts in intercity buses memorandum”.
Summer is coming, and with summer comes increased dangers in roads or railways. There are more children playing outside, drivers and passengers think about long-waited holidays and are prone to various distractions. Increased road and railway traffic coincides with a higher volume of traffic accidents.
