A driving school teaching people to drive motor vehicles with five employees and three locations.
The Autoscuola Pitagora, in collaboration with the Centro Di Monitoraggio per la sicurezza stradale (Road Safety Observatory) of the Province of Crotone, hereby subscribes to the European Road Safety Charter for the next three years with a drivers’ education project aiming to prevent risks and foster a culture of safety, in accordance with the direction set by the European Union. The project specifically aims to raise awareness among children, who are pedestrians today, cyclists tomorrow, and soon thereafter motorcyclists or motor vehicle passengers, and in the end road users but above all potential future drivers, educating them on the rules of road behaviour. To do this, we will organize:
Lessons at the driving school for nursery school children between the ages of three and five, along with outings to observe and study the traffic signs and signals, so that they can make their first acquaintance with traffic-related spaces and their functions (use of traffic signs, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and traffic signals).
Lessons at the driving school for elementary school children between the ages of six and ten, combined with outings to do exercises on courses created with temporary materials (cardboard rolls, bowling pins or skittles, stakes, tin cans and boxes forming a course the children will have to travel following the instructions and signs).
Lessons at the driving school for middle school students between the ages of 11 and 14, organized with the help of posters, images and video-projectors, and including outings into downtown Crotone during which the students will have to recognize traffic signs and road markings, behaving correctly at traffic signals especially where one must yield or has the right of way.
Strengthening the learning experiences through discussion, photos, image reading, production of graphics and creation of posters. In total, 6 schools will be involved (two elementary schools and four middle schools) and a total of approximately 190 children.
