For years the road safety situation in Bulgaria was understandable mainly for the Bulgarians and little was known abroad. This was due not because we do not work on the issue in the country but because not many documents exist in a language other than Bulgarian. In 2013 and 2014 iRED issued two National reports in the framework of the ROSEE project. Let's hope now more people will be aware of what is done in Bulgaria and the progress, we make.
Los accidentes de tráfico son la primera causa de muerte entre los jóvenes españoles. Está demostrado científicamente que estos accidentes pueden, en su mayoría, prevenirse o disminuir sus consecuencias si se adoptan las medidas oportunas. Creemos que una formación reglada sobre seguridad vial y movilidad sostenible desde la escuela es una de las claves que, de ser implantada en España, concienciarían al futuro conductor y ayudarían a reducir el número de muertes en carretera. Según el estudio Búsqueda de Soluciones al Problema de la Siniestralidad Vial de los Jóvenes.
The Czech Beer and Malt Association (CBMA) takes an active role in promoting a responsible approach to alcohol consumption. One of its self-regulation activities is the project „When I Drive I Drink NA Beer“, which was launched in 2011 and aims to encourage responsible behavior among drivers. The project’s objective is to both minimize the occurrence of alcohol behind the wheel, which is a major cause of serious road accidents, and to increase awareness of non-alcoholic beer as a safe alternative, in terms of law enforcement and driver safety.
Apart from health hazards, alcohol and drug consumption of youths and young adults represents a big problem - especially in road traffic. The number of accidents of young male and female novice drivers is – according to accident statistics of all European countries – above the average, although the number of road traffic accidents is decreasing annually. E.g. in Germany, the age group of 18 to 24 years causes about 25% of the accidents under the influence of alcoho and around 32% of the accidents under the influence of drugs, although they represent only 8% of the population.
