O μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός My Grand Road σε συνεργασία με την τοποική αστυνομία του Δήμου Λουτρακίου και με την υποστήριξη του Δήμου Λουτρακίου θα διοργανώσει ενημερωτική δράση στους μαθητές του Δημοτικού Σχολείου της Περαχώρας του Δ.

Σγκεκριμένα θα ενημερωθούν οι μαθητές για την χρήση της Λωρίδας Έκτακτης Ανάγκης , τα οχήματα που έχουν δικαίωμα να την χρησιμοποιούν, τους Ελληνικούς τηλεφωνικούς ανάγκης καθώς και για τον ευρωπαϊκό αριθμό έκτακτης ανάγκης τον 112.

As the summer passed away, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has ended their social campaign which encouraged young pupils to share their drawings on how they imagine a safety reflector which could save their lives in roads. With a beginning of a new academic year, winners of the contest have been awarded and reflectors based on their drawings are now being presented and will soon be available for more than 15 000 road users.

Every year more than 6 million passengers travel by intercity buses to reach their homes, works or holiday destinations. Only a small part of them use seat belts – to be more specific, only 13,9 % of passengers do follow safety instructions regarding seat belts. Lack of knowledge surely is not the main factor because more than 62% of travelers do know that they must wear seat belts.

With such a worrying trend, Lithuanian Transport Safety Administration has encouraged and invited carriers and bus station managers to sign a “Promotion of seat belts in intercity buses memorandum”.

The biggest mistake that occurs both in our country Greece and at European level is the fact that driving is treated as an easy, simple and safe everyday habit, resulting from the conviction of the modern driver that a car accident isn’t going to happen to himself/herself. It’s statistically proven that we will be part of at least one serious car accident in our lives, due to either our own fault or to someone else’s.
