In the school year 2011/2012 the Road Traffic Safety Agency started with the educational campaign „ATTENTION NOW” dedicated to children. This campaign marks the beginning
By this campaign we wanted to draw attention to the most important topics in the field of children’s safety in traffic, such as the acquisition of knowledge about the essential traffic rules and the acquisition of basic skills, of which, for this age group the most important are the correct moving across the street, the importance of tying the seat belt in a vehicle and the importance of wearing reflective clothing.
„FOR A SAFE AND PLEASANT JOURNEY”
The Road Traffic Safety Agency and the Traffic Police Directorate of MoINT of Serbia organized a campaign „For a safe and pleasant journey” which was realized at the busiest routes in July and August considering the fact that during these summer months the accidents involving people are the most frequent on our roads.
Members of the Traffic Police and officials of the Agency distributed to the drivers the promotional material and gave advices for safe driving. A part of the material was intended for foreign drivers and printed in the English language.
