Conference at the Parliament and "Safety- I Want to Live" project
11 May 2011, Road and Safety Association

Unfortunately, for technical reasons participation of Road and Safety Association in the Launching Conference at the Parliament has been omitted. Therefore we would like to inform about our engagement in it. We will give a presentation of our plans on activities for the Decade.There will be also a stand showing examples of different educational materials ( leaflets,CDs,posters,reflective elements, books), we use in our road safety activities. We will ask the audience to test the special equipment, like alcogogles and a special tube for presenting significance of proper visibility. The testing will be supported by our printed information on impairment of vision, hearing and reaction, when being under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Our special leaflet on reflexes and visibility will be also distributed. We have proposed to commemorate road victims by a minute of silence and reflection during the "Safety- I Want to Live" event in the evening.
