European Road Safety Day
The European Commission marked European Road Safety Day with a series of trainings targeting primary school and high school students organised by the EU Infopoint in collaboration with the Prevention of Traffic Accidents Association and TRAKAYAD.
The events took place at the Traffic Education Park on 15 October from 9:30 – 11:30, at Turk Maarif Koleji (TMK) on 20 October from 11:45 - 13:00 and at Bülent Ecevit High School on 21 October from 10:00 – 11:30. The events included presentations and training on road safety and practical training in the simulated traffic park. In addition to these, information on the EU Road Safety Policy and goals were shared with the participants.
These events aimed to inform participants about the safety measures and behavioural changes that could make a difference in reducing accidents on roads.
A number of local partners have joined together to support the activities including Prevention of Traffic Accidents Association, TRAKAYAD, Levent Primary School, Levent College, TMK and Bülent Ecevit high School.
