The Landesverkehrswacht Brandenburg (Road Safety Observatory of Land Brandenburg) is a registered, non-profit organisation with 690 volunteer traffic observers which works towards road safety and road safety education in the Land of Brandenburg.
In order to combat inadequate driving experience and excessive recklessness in drivers and thereby attain lower accident rates in the Land of Brandenburg, the Landesverkehrswacht Brandenburg will carry out 50 road safety training programmes per year for approximately 500 young drivers aged 18 to 25, who are taking part in the pilot project, “Begleitetes Fahren mit 17" (Accompanied Driving at 17), in the Land of Brandenburg.
This safety training is to take place over the course of the next three years, from March to December of each year.
The physical and mental preparation of non-adult road users are to be improved through movement exercises. A scooter training programme should reach 1,200 children in nurseries and day-care centres in the Land of Brandenburg. In this theoretical and practical learning module, the children will improve their motor skills and learn about road safety while practising their scooter skills at their respective nurseries or day-care centres.
