In spite of the fact that more people die as a result of road traffic accidents than from any other diseases,
road safety still hasn’t received the attention as it deserves.
More than 50% of all road traffic deaths are among vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
To provide you with new insights in this theme, Bill Carmichael and Angelika Biro will explain how they contribute towards safer roads.

Bill Carmichael - my Child Pedestrian Road Safety Resource ROADMATE"Every four minutes a child is prematurely lost on the roads of this world".
So why are our children killed or injured as a result of road traffic accidents? The answer is simple... Just because we tell our children to do something doesn't mean they will apply this in practice. We learn 10% of what we read,15% of what we hear and 80% of what we do ourselves.
ROADMATE has been designed as a portable accessible product that can be used anywhere: car journeys, at home or in the classroom. This Innovative Child Pedestrian Road Safety Resource ROADMATE has been designed to teach children the correct behaviour to cross the road safely.Being aware that many of you are already conversant in this field, Bill Carmichael feels that simply sharing information that you will already be aware of may not allow for a more interesting presentation. In view of this and, in order to allow the audience to become more informed about my Child pedestrian Road Safety Resource named ROADMATE
