Promoting traffic safety culture in Greece - awareness campaign and educational programmes for safe walking and cycling

The Road Safety Institute (RSI) "Panos Mylonas" will promote instructions and tips for safely walking during the day and night. It will do so through an awareness campaign and a video where RSI instructors will show the public how to stay safe and enjoy moving. In addition, RSI will provide a number of road safety educational programmes for kids and young people on safe walking and cycling.

Demonstrations with experiential learning simulator equipment (roll-over simulator car, belt sledge seat, reaction test, collision weight scale and alco-goggles) will also take place to raise awareness among citizens of road safety issues such as: speeding, seat belt use, drink driving, distraction and child restraints.

Educational activities will take place in the Municipality of Athens, Rethymno (Crete) and the Municipality of Peristeri (Attica).
