ROMOTING THE SAFE DRIVING CONSCIOUSNESS AT LOCAL L.. (PROMO SAFE DRIVING)
ROMOTING THE SAFE DRIVING CONSCIOUSNESS AT LOCAL LEVEL IN GREECE AND BULGARIA CROSS-BORDER REGION
(PROMO SAFE DRIVING)
Start date: Mar 13, 2011,
End date: Sep 29, 2013
The TEP/Traffic Education Park in Serres (one of the 150 similar TEPs in Greece) includes a network of vehicle/bicycle roads & pedestrian paths with all necessarysigns, a parking space, a lecture amphitheatre (open), a light-structured storage place of driving equipment (e.g. small cars/bikes). As 2 TEPs will be developed (the existingone in Serres will be upgraded & the one in Petrich will be developed from the scratch), the cross-border population will benefit due to the expected decrease in the numberof traffic accidents in the area (this already happened in Serres). This is very important for Petritch as it suffers severe consequences due to the high number of fatal traffic accidents occurring every year, with children being the victims as they do not receive anytraffic education adequately.The project will also establish Safe Driving Schools (SDS) in each partners area. The SDS of Serres is already located in the existing facilities of the Serres Race Circuit and will be upgraded. Both theoretical & practice lessons will be performed in both areas and will be of high quality supported by quality equipment that will be purchased (e.g. driving simulator). The proposed project will guarantee the SDSs sustainability. Expected Results: Results: The expected results of the project are: a)set-up of 2 networks (1 of TEPs &1 of SDSs) between the 2 cities (this will focus on experience exchange regarding troubleshooting tips at operational level & experience exchange resulting from the changing needs of the local populations & trainees regarding the topics of interest);b)the number of local/national stakeholders (related to the project's specific topics of interest) that are expected to join the established through the project networks between the TEPs & SDSs of the two areas.
