Only in Belgium nearly 50 accidents are registrated caused by the blind spot. Victims are mostly the vulnerable road users such as pedestrians,cyclists and bikers. The classic blind spot located at the right side of a truck plays an important role upon analysing those accidents. It should be said, that regrettably ,yearly 5 till 10 perons, amoungst them children and youngsters die, being involved in such accidents. In our neigbouring countries, this situation is very similar and proportional, the figures are corresponding in many ways.
Each autumn XIU calls on its members to bring the issue of visibility for young cyclists to their attention. During XIU ACTION WEEK we ask schools and parents ' associations to simultaneously take action. In this way, we want to create a group feeling for the young people. And at the same time encourage and inspire schools and parents ' associations by showing that they are not alone in their struggle. The actions in schools are quite varied. It can be about a ' fluo-breakfast ', a ' fluo-music performance ', 'fluo poster campaign, ' fluo flashmob ' etc.
L'association a pour principal objectif de sensibiliser, par le concept " Bobby ", l'enfant et son entourage à la sécurité routière. Le concept consiste en une borne interactive informatique grâce à laquelle l'enfant guide Bobby, un petit extraterrestre, le long du chemin de l'école ou pour se rendre à vélo chez son copain. D'autres logiciels sont en préparation, notamment pour apprendre la signification des signaux routiers. Toutes les activités sont basées sur le bénévolat. Les bénévoles se rendent ainsi dans les écoles qui en font la demande. L'enfant apprend tout en s'amusant.
The association’s overarching goal is to raise the road safety awareness of children and their entourage using the “Bobby” concept. This concept comprises an interactive computer terminal thanks to which children guide Bobby, a young extraterrestrial, on the way to school or by bicycle to their friend’s house. The creation of other software is underway, particularly to learn the meaning of road signs. All the activities are carried out on a voluntary basis. The volunteers travel to schools that have requested them to do so. The children learn while having fun.
