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..

One of the central goals of road operators is to achieve road safety across the entire road network. With SAFE, we carry out comprehensive analyses to reliably assess the risk of accidents on existing and planned roads and develop measures to reduce accidents.
We have established traffic safety classrooms in the police headquarters of participating regions. Both pre-school and general education students are participating in organized visits. The visitors are assuming multiple roles as drivers, pedestrians and passengers. They acquire theoretical and practical knowledge, relative to the safe use of our roads. The Lithuanian Traffic Police Service represents the Lithuanian Police within the national traffic safety system, ensures the implementation of effective measures for safer traffic.
