Please describe the main road safety challenges/problems you have addressed or are addressing. 
Distraction is a serious issue, especially for teenagers. Many of our students come to school in the morning with headphones, which are connected to a cell phone or other device. Many of them also ride their bicycles, wearing headphones. In addition, we had a discussion with some of them about whether they feel safe and secure when they come to school... Our school has students with learning difficulties, with ADHD, but also students on the autism spectrum. The pedagogical goals of the program for students were: Give the opportunity to express themselves artistically, creating digital videos and / or through web2.00 and web3.00 tools, Get acquainted with the "language" of cinematic narration, To acquire traffic education and road safety skills, To become judges, researchers and environmental researchers, To raise awareness on Road Safety issues, Understand the relationship between road safety and the universal right to life, health and personal safety, To understand through the diptych "Responsible user of the road network - responsible citizen" that road safety and the improvement of road conditions is a common responsibility of all of us, To be consistent in the planning of a task and responsibility for its implementation, To have the opportunity to express opinions and develop critical thinking through the language code, To develop social skills (cooperation, teamwork, participation, negotiation, respect, responsibility)
