European Day Without a Road Death - Bitola

Through this action, all road users, and especially drivers, were called on to think for a moment about the risk they face and the risk they put other road users at from throughtless behaviour in traffic, such as not stopping in time at pedestrian crossings, moving away too soon, failing to keep a safe distance, drink driving, excessive speed, etc., and how they can reduce these risks.

We chose a preventive measure that involved the youngest participants in traffic - children from the elementary school "Elpida Karamandi Bitola" and the Emanuil Handicapped Persons Institute, who crossed the pedestrian crossing showing STOP signs to impatient and irresponsible drivers.

Our leading idea is INTEGRATION of institutions and associations to support and promote measures that will provide a comprehensive analysis of the possibilities for improving road safety in Bitola.
