According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death in the 5–24 years age group in Europe and worldwide. All European governments are committed to the reduction in the number of road fatalities and casualties, however this presents major challenges for road accident prevention, including a need to improve road safe behaviours and attitudes of all citizens, such as through education programmes in school communities. In order to facilitate the process of introduction and implementation of road safety education in the school curricula KROS offers teachers a comprehensive training programme along with a platform with educational resources.

The goal is that effective road safety education in schools will influence all members of the school community, including students, families, school administration and teachers, to be responsible on the road. This holistic school approach is needed to be encompassed and promoted by a relevant pedagogical framework.

Our School joined the network of KROS and received access to the training materials and resources. The proposed activities address major road safety issues such as


  • Speeding
  • Seat belt use and protection devices
  • Drink driving
  • Distraction
  • Cycling and motorcycling
  • Fatigue & drowsiness
  • Passenger safety
  • Vulnerable Road Users
  • Sustainable and active travel
  • Peer pressure

We used the OSOS approach described below
