General Auto-Moto-Club of the Czech Republic - ÚAMK ČR
Czech Republic | Association
ÚAMK CR is formed by more than 500 independent clubs with almost 200 000 members. ÚAMK provides services for its own and other FIA club members, car manufacturers and importers. It is highly engaged in Road safety, provides traffic and tourist information, publishes monthly magazine. Its activities are also focused on motoring and non-motoring sports and historical vehicles. Number of staff: 125.
Thinking and attitude of people concerning the Road Safety have still to be changed. A pro-active approach towards safety and individual role of each traffic participant should become their standard behavioural norm. It has been confirmed that there has been an improvement in the seat belts usage in the front seats as it nowadays becomes very common to use them. On the other hand there are still problems with usage of the seat belts on back seats and the use of child restraint systems.
For improving that, we will organize Road Safety events throughout the whole year (except for winter period), with duration of 1 day for each event. The estimate of approximately 2000 attendees participating at each event is based on several years of experience with similar activities.
The main educational tool is a seat belt slide - a simulator of a car impact into a solid obstacle by the speed of 30 km / h. Our specially trained staff will be demonstrating and operating the slide while the people may experience what such an impact looks and feels like. The public is then being informed about he the importance of seat belts using.
For this second three years phase of our European Road Safety Charter we commit to organize at least 50 such events per year and reach by our action approximately 100.000 participants per year.
