Activities

Premlad.si (Too young to die)
29 March 2007 — nation-wide, Slovenia


Slovene Road Safety Council prepared several activities as a part of the First UN Global Road Safety Week in April 2007. From February 1st until March 29th, young people are given a chance to submit their own suggestions on road safety measures on a web page www.premlad.si (Too young to die). These measures can include anything from preventive or advertising programmes, programmes intended for schools and universities, legislative measures for drivers, novice drivers or road safety regulations, technical solutions for cars, road infrastructure, IT technology or any other suggestion that could improve road safety among young. The web page also has an option of submitting a photo of a certain dangerous road areas or a road safety problem, to submit a slogan for an action on road safety. The main idea of the web page is to promote road safety among young people, to stimulate their ideas and make them realize they are too young to loose a friend, relative or their life in a road accident. With this action we give young people a chance to participate and submit their ideas in a media they are familiar with.

Street playing day
25 April 2007 — nation-wide, Slovenia


The programme "Street playing day" is a part of work done on a local level. Local road safety councils have been invited to prepare events for kindergartens and elementary schools on April 25th 2007. The goal of the programme is to calm down traffic in areas with schools and kindergartens and to give children a chance to play outside. The programme whishes to point out the problems, mainly in urban areas, where there aren't enough areas where children could play safely, where there aren't safe school roads or cycle paths. The goal is to close down at least 50 streets for this event and make them safe for children to play on. With this simbolic act, we can point out other problems regarding overall use of motor vehicles in urban areas. The streets we intend to close are mainly streets in areas with schools and kindergartens and residential streets who wish to endorse traffic calming measures in their areas. We want to promote the meausure of turning these streets into the residential areas (max. speed 10km/h). The programme Street playing day wishes to motivate people in helping to bring such measures successfully into action.
