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.

Ο οργανισμός μας σε συνεργασία με την Αμπελουργική Πολιτεία του Πύργου ΚΑΝΙΑΡΗ και το Le Mirage Catering στο πλαίσιο της εκδήλωσης με θέμα το κρασί, που θα πραγματοποιηθεί στον χώρο εκδηλώσεων του Αμπελώνα θα ενημερώσει τους επισκέπτες για την σχέση του αλκοόλ με την οδήγηση. Ο κακός αυτός συνδυασμός συνάδει με το θανάσιμο αποτέλεσμα που αποφέρει όταν καταναλώνουμε αλκοόλ και οδηγούμε. Το μήνυμά μας είναι ‘’ Όχι αλκοόλ και οδήγηση ‘’ σε συνδυασμό με την ευρωπαϊκή οδηγία ‘’ Ο οδηγός της παρέας ‘’ .

The "Krakow roads without alcohol - Krakowskie Drogi bez Promili" campaign, organized by the Prodriver Foundation, took place in Krakow in the form of four events. The aim of the campaign was to promote social attitudes and encourage the Cracovians to oppose driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs in the context of road traffic.

Την Παρασκευή 21 Σεπτεμβρίου 2018 στην Πλατεία λιονταριών Ηρακλείου στα πλαίσια των εκδηλώσεων Δήμος Ηρακλείου - Municipality of Heraklion για την Ευρωπαϊκή Εβδομάδα Κινητικότητας Ηράκλειο, συμμετείχαμε αναπτύσσοντας δραστηριότητες για τους μικρούς μας φίλους με στόχο να καλλιεργήσουμε τη συγκέντρωση και την αφοσίωση που απαιτείται ώστε τα παιδιά μας να ενταχθούν στην Κοινωνία της Κυκλοφορίας.

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.

The European Road Safety Charter workshop took place on Tuesday, 29 May 2018, at the Swedish Waterfront Congress Centre, Stockholm, Sweden.

The event was opened by Mr. Lars Olov Sjöström from Swedish Abstaining Motorists Association (MHF), the co-organiser of the event. Ms. Ylva Berg, from the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation presented the Vision Zero strategy in Sweden, from its inception back in 1997, to its re-launch in 2016, as well as further developments planned to improve road safety in Sweden.

In its business operations, Compensa emphasises popularisation of both behaviours increasing safety on roads, as well as activities aimed at dissemination of knowledge with regard to first aid and rescue, as well as education in these areas. In the 3rd quarter of 2017, Compensa along with Road Safety Centre in Łódź began the social campaign "Bezpieczna Autostrada" ("Safe Motorway"), the main purpose of which is to increase safety on motorways.

We are a group of traffic police officers interested in improving Road Safety. We want to have safer roads and reduce the amount of accidents and deaths. We spend part of our free time in helping drivers to solve their doubts about the Spanish Traffic Law, for that reason we created in 2015 a page on facebook where we write articles an answer doubts to the people who do not speak Spanish.

MyLAC project - jointly conducted by the Vias Institute and FEVR was to gain a better understanding of the range of consequences of road crashes for injured #RoadVictims. Our results showed that about half of the victims that were not considered at fault did not go to court and that a similar proportion of them did not receive any compensation for neither injuries nor for pain and suffering.

European Union Agency for Railways and the European Commissioner for Transport have recently invited members of different National Safety Agencies to Sign the European Railway Safety Declaration. Initiative was introduced in order to establish a positive safety culture or railways in Europe, while also encouraging the railway sector to be working closely together.

Declaration itself demonstrates the commitment of European railway leaders to raise awareness and promote a positive safety culture throughout the entire industry, in different European countries.

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.
