About Project EDWARD and the Road Safety Days

The objective of the European Day Without A Road Death or Project EDWARD is that no one should die on the roads of Europe on Thursday 26 September. In the days leading up to Project EDWARD, we want all road users to think – even for just a few minutes – about the risks they face, the risks they may pose to others and how they can go about reducing those risks. We believe that #ProjectEDWARD can make a significant contribution towards further reducing road deaths and serious injury.

Whether you represent a national government, a private organisation, a public agency, a charity, a school, college or university, or whether you simply care as an individual, please join us and organise Road Safety Days across Europe.


Road Safety Days are activities and events that raise awareness of risks road users may encounter and that promote safe behaviour and the respect of traffic rules. Any activity promoting road safety culture can be a Road Safety Day, including information and awareness-raising activities in schools and in companies, workshops, conferences and competitions.


Road Safety Days can be organised on 26 September, the European Day Without A Road Death or throughout the European Mobility Week, from 16 to 22 September.


Activities and events take place across all of Europe, in any size of area and in any venue. The Road Safety Day map shows when activities are taking place near you.


Any organisation or individual can organise a Road Safety Day. They can be targeted at any audience: children, youngsters, teachers, professional road users, companies, academics or different groups of road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists or novice drivers.


Road Safety Days are part of the Project EDWARD – a European Day Without A Road Death. The target is to reduce the number of road fatalities and serious road traffic injuries to the aspirational zero on that day. But of course, every day should be #ProjectEDWARD, knowing that small actions lead to big improvements.
