The Safety Week programme is organised for the second time, this year linked to European Mobility Week.
The programme's main objective is to raise awareness of road safety and accident prevention. Safety Week is a national project with programmes in many cities in Hungary. At the events, children (7-14 years) can participate in many activities in connection with road safety in playful and interactive ways.
On 19 September, the programme will take place in Budaörs. Here, children can try driving a simulator, and participate in an accident scene investigation competition. The KTI will also provide a mini traffic field, where children can practice their traffic knowledge by riding a bike or roller blades. In addition, they can learn about the obligatory equipment of a bike and talk about traffic rules and signs with well-trained instructors. There will also be traffic arcade games, a traffic sign puzzle and traffic tests.
In one activity, KTI will set up a visibility tent that demonstrates the visibility of a man walking on the roadside at night. It is dark in the tent and the children will be able to see the difference in visibility between a man in dark clothes and another in a visibility vest.
These interesting and interactive activities on road safety help children to learn and practice traffic rules and safe behaviour on the roads.
