Axel Druart (Responsible Young Drivers) recently spoke with us about the European Road Safety Charter’s new mission to engage with vulnerable road users, particularly youth.

“At 16-years-old, you start to be able to drive a motorbike, so you need to know you have to wear a helmet, you need to know the consequences if you’re over speeding. It’s some kind of ignorance because they have never had the experience of a crash.

"As well, alcohol and drugs are very deep issues right now.”

The ERSCharter plans to hold workshops in each of the 28 EU member states for the period 2013-2016. Druart, a road safety expert and avid campaigner, highlights the main aim for these events:

“Our goal is to engage young people and young stakeholders, working in road safety altogether, to connect them, to create synergies, and to create concrete outcomes after the workshops. Mainly we want to exchange ideas, opinions.

"These are the topics that we will bring to the workshops during the European Road Safety Charter.”

Axel Druart was speaking with us as part of the ERSCharter experts’ meeting, held in Barcelona at the end of 2013.

“Finding Your Way - A Guide for Victims Following the Death or Serious Injury of a Loved one in a Road Traffic Collision”.


Created by PARC Road Safety Group, the guide has arisen out of the pain, hurt, lack of information and confusion of those who have suffered greatly as a result of a road traffic collision in which they lost a loved one or been injured themselves. It is written with the intention of enabling those who come after us to benefit from our experience. It is our hope that it will empower families.

Nato principalmente per far capire ai giovani che la vita e' un dono prezioso, e bisogna averne cura..
I punti chiave del corto/film sono 3.
1) Sicurezza in primis.. Mettersi il casco,  allacciarsi la cintura in auto.. Non usare cellulari..ecc
2) Capire che una distrazione anche minima possa determinare eventi catastrofici, sia per se stessi per per gli altri..
3) Non guidare in stati alternati di coscienza, determinati da alcol, droghe, e altri stupefacenti, che coinvolgono sia giovani che adulti.

Sharing the Road with Cyclists

Cyclists are entitled to road space as much as cars, vans, goods vehicles or indeed any other vehicle on the road. This commercial aims to educate drivers on sharing the roads safely with cyclists, and motorists' responsibility to cyclists as vulnerable road users.
