Road Safety Class is a project which was developed between 2015 and 2019 throughout Bucharest, the Capital of Romania, reaching not less than 65.000 kids. The project is informing 3rd and 4rd graders about the traffic rules and the importance of respecting them. Nowadays, Road Safety Class became the most complex and extensive road safety project that has ever been implemented in Romania. At the moment of speaking, we are requested by parents, high school executives and authorities to develop this project further, introducing it into high schools of Bucharest, for the future drivers.
The Safety Road Class, held every school day in Bucharest, have turned out to be a complex project and beyond that, in the autumn of 2019 we will run it as a pilot throughout big cities of Romania.
Of course, such a complex project can only be implemented with the help of an appropriate team. Our team has exceptional psychologists, who trained the Psychology and Pedagogy students to teach Road Safety, developing thus a methodology namely designed for this project. Policemen, known as “the superheroes”, attend each of our classes, students gain experience in human interaction, photographers spot every moment suitable for framing and open-minded teachers are willing to provide the little pedestrians with the everyday safety they need.
After each class we are urging the pupils, under the careful guidance of their teachers, to create a layout that has to include all the acquired knowledge.
What is more, we took The Safety Road Class further and organized some events, safety road based, in commercial spaces characterized by intense traffic of people. Thereby, in the 2017-2018 school year, we developed 5 workshops from which 3 concerned safety road and the other 2 were first aid lessons.
In June of 2018, we organized an complex event of defensive driving in the parking lot of Bucharest Mall where we had safety road workshops, bike trails with obstacles, rally car and professional drivers together with the representatives of Romanian Police, promotions and lots of prizes for our supporters.
We do not limit ourselves to educating children, so we went for the teachers too. In the 2017-2018 school year we developed 5 training courses for primary and preschool teachers at 2 highschool in Bucharest, where more than 500 teachers got instructed by psychologists and police officers.
We are not confined to offline activities, but proactively involved in social networks, such as Facebook and Instagram, where we came up with an awareness-raising campaign on the importance of the Road Safety Education.
