GENERAL REPORT. THIRD JOINT CONFERENCE ON ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS

This paper gives a general report on the Third Joint Council of Europe/ECMT Conference on Road Safety Education for Children and Teenagers. A review of the conference proceedings pointed to a number of important findings which lie at the root of the recommendations adopted at the closing session. These findings are: (i) the need to train, motivate and help the teachers and educationists concerned with young children and teenagers; (ii) the fundamental role of parents; (iii) the role of police forces and traffic experts as important extensions of the school; (iv) the role of all the private or public agencies concerned, primarily or accessorily, with road education and involved in one way or another with road traffic; and (v) the need for a sustained effort of inquiry to evaluate the results of work to date as accurately as possible and to analyze all the psychological or socio-psychological reasons that may stand in the way of proper road safety education, both among children and among adults.
