ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION IN THE ISRAELI EDUCATION SYSTEM . PROCEEDINGS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEW WAYS AND MEANS FOR IMPROVED SAFETY, TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, FEBRUARY 20-23, 1989

The increase in road accidents in Israel and a rapid increase in the number of vehicles has forced the education system to think about how to educate pupils to adapt to modern traffic as pedestrians, bicycle riders and drivers. A curriculum has been developed starting in nursery school (5 years) up to high school final grade (17/18 years). The curriculum aims to improve knowledge, efficiency and values, while increasing awareness of the road safety problem. The teaching of road safety in educational institutions continuously, with application to a specific age group, will ensure that the information be instilled both within the pupils and teachers. It is vital to appreciate the importance of this issue in an individual's life. Pupils know that they are part of the modern transport system, and this education will show them how to participate in it safely. At the end of their studies, pupils will become contributory and conscientious users of transportation, thus decreasing road accidents. (TRRL)
