Stichting Bevordering Verkeerseducatie (SBV) signs the European Road Safety Cahrter for the next 3 years with the following actions:
1) The SBV will start in 2011 a new project. In November 2011 the Dutch government starts with a pilot which is called 2toDrive. Young people of 17 can have their car license with the age of 17. During the year till their 18th birthday they are not allowed to drive alone, only with an older person next to them. The SBV will start a course for these older people. We will teach them in 3 parts: the theory, what happens when you drive on icy road and what to do when you drive in a car as helper. We will try to teach 300 people yearly. If there is more need fort his training, we will increase the number of trainings.
2) The SBV will start a new project for foreigners. We will teach the people who come to live in Holland from abroad. They can have theoretical lessons as well as practical lessons. The people will be reached through the local communities and the refugee centre.
3) The SBV will start a new project about alcohol and drugs. This project tries to give information to new drivers, who are busy to have a driver’s license and their teachers. We will organise 10 information sessions yearly for students. In 2011 we will organise 3 sessions for the teachers. The training is to give information about drugs and alcohol and what the consequences are when you drive with drugs and/or alcohol.
