The LIVES project evaluation report represents an independent overview of what iRED and its partners managed to develop in South Eastern Europe for the past 18 months, covering Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Poland. The document analyses the feedback of almost five thousand people, actively involved in the project as direct participants, volunteers, trainers and coordinators, and compares it to our previous initiatives “Volunteer! … through road safety” and “Actions Corresponding to the creativeness and local Opportunities in Road safety Development”.
Apart from health hazards, alcohol and drug consumption of youths and young adults represents a big problem - especially in road traffic. The number of accidents of young male and female novice drivers is – according to accident statistics of all European countries – above the average, although the number of road traffic accidents is decreasing annually. E.g. in Germany, the age group of 18 to 24 years causes about 25% of the accidents under the influence of alcoho and around 32% of the accidents under the influence of drugs, although they represent only 8% of the population.

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.
