Background & Objectives

School zones by nature are points of conflict at the level of movement. The agglomeration of people, vehicles, school transport, concentrated in a very specific space and time, make these places, generating zones of danger and stress.

Particularly serious is the accident rate associated with children because they are a population group particularly vulnerable to traffic accidents and significant impact on families. Adolescents are also a risk group both because of their inexperience in driving and by the willingness to assume risk behaviours. Early education and training is the solution for processing more efficient in the medium and long term, to change attitudes and habits, and convey positive values / insurance when moving by road.

With these parameters is a plan of education for schoolchildren, ages ranging between 6 and 16 years. This program aims at developing habits and safe behaviours among students mobility.

The first issue is to agree with schools, to include these sessions in their activities, including sessions on subjects, where the recognition by the institution, parents and students of the sessions that were to be taught. The training activities were carried out in schools and school hours, The training activities in schools have been conducted by two police officers who are destined to the area of education and safe mobility.

To give an enhancement to the program have been established collaboration agreements with entities that are fully connected with the traffic, whether private or public entities. It has been with the collaboration of the RACC, Atitudes, JANE, INSTITUT GUTTMAN, HONDA, Servei Català transit
