The campaign is Polish nationwide and will be carried out on motorways A1, A2 and A4 until the end of 2018.

Drivers receive packages of materials, containing, among others, information about how to correctly drive on motorways, about safety in the road traffic for adults and children, emergency corridor stickers for cars as well as ICE cards (in case of emergency), helpful in notifying relatives in the event of an accident. The materials are also disseminated at entrance gates of motorways during selected weekends. Practical trainings and e-learning courses concerning first aid are to be organised for employees of key stations on A1, A2 and A4 motorways, as well as for motorway service employees. Additionally, the aforementioned stations will be equipped with professional first aid kits. The campaign will also cover contest for drivers, in which they will be able to win, among others, safe driving courses and e-learning courses concerning first aid.
