Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration have supported project EDWARD – the European Day without a Road Death which took place on 19 September during the European Mobility Week.

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”.

The biggest mistake that occurs both in our country Greece and at European level is the fact that driving is treated as an easy, simple and safe everyday habit, resulting from the conviction of the modern driver that a car accident isn’t going to happen to himself/herself. It’s statistically proven that we will be part of at least one serious car accident in our lives, due to either our own fault or to someone else’s.

Since its origins, the Abertis Foundation's priorities have been to generate and share new knowledge of road safety and to raise awareness of the need for a safe mobility among different key groups. Throughout these years, the aim of the road safety programme has been to support drivers in all the phases of their lives and in all the countries where the Group has a significant presence: Brazil, Chile, Spain, France, Argentina and Puerto Rico.
