On February 6th 2019, several experts explained the importance of road safety education during a webinar. It was the third webinar of the current Charter edition.
The webinar started with a presentation by Ludo Kluppels, traffic psychologist at Vias institute. Ludo touched on three topics: road safety education for children and youngsters, driver education and road safety education in companies. Next, we had the pleasure to work with Jennie Hargreaves, teacher at the Lockerbie Academy in Scotland, on education for children and young adults. In her presentation on ‘The Physics of Road Safety’, Jennie explained some of the various activities in the school's innovative road safety programme. Last but not least there was a presentation by Erik Roelofs, doctor of Philosophy and senior assessment scientist at CITO in The Netherlands. Erik shed a light on research and insights on moral reasoning during driving.

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.

We have place photos of our loved ones who were killed on the roads in white photo frames. The number of frames indicative of the numbers killed in one year. Numbers mean nothing to people but when they see the real people behind the statistics it has a huge impact. Each person killed, much more than just a number. We have taken our display to schools, road safety roadshows, companies, ploughing championships, outdoor events, and Houses of Parliament. In so doing we have helped to get road safety legislation passed which had been previously opposed.
Lockerbie Academy has integrated road safety in its educational programme, in physics through the themes of speed, velocity, distance and braking. Together with Police Scotland, students simulated road crashes. They surveyed parents and teachers about their awareness of driving in bad conditions and worked on a plan to assist drivers in different traffic situations. Recently we added a safe winter drive campaign where the Police taught the students how to do winter car checks and then the students went to a local supermarket and under police and teacher guidance checked local cars..
