The Trets City Council is a territorial administration. The city has some 10,000 inhabitants.
In order to reduce accidents in the Trets region, particularly among young people and two-wheeled vehicle drivers, we aim to carry out the following actions:
We will organise awareness activities for young drivers (who have been in possession of a driving licence from six months to three years). Each action will take place over one day and will include a morning practical session followed by self-assessment, then a preventative driving training session. In 2006, we aim to hold nine such days for about ten young people a day.
We will organise a VIE (Vehicle, Individual, Environment) training meeting in the city school. This preventative action will take place over a one-day period and will be based on the risks linked to driving motorcycles. It will involve some 200 young people.
We will pass on the message of the Road Safety Week by organising a Road Safety Day in the city on 14 October 2006. On this occasion, we will set up booths and activities (such as testing reflexes and sight, using a loss of roadholding simulator, etc.).
We will organise in September or October 2006 an information day on the risks of two-wheeled vehicles, aimed at motorcyclists, which will involve training for safer driving. We aim to reach some 15 people on a volunteer basis.
These actions may be continued, after evaluation, in 2007 and 2008.
