Road safety campaigns

The continuous concern for the improvement of road safety in Romania demonstrated by Industrie Mică Prahova SA manifested itself in the signing of the European Road Safety Charter in 2012, but also through numerous initiatives in this area, such as:

  1.  Your Safety Matters Also In Traffic! – road safety campaign for kindergarten children and school children implemented in 2016 and 2019
  2. You Are Free To Travel Without Any Events! 2018.

 

The two above-mentioned campaigns were nominated in Prahova Community Gala in 2018 and 2019.

Drumul in siguranta, the weblog launched by Industrie Mica Prahova as part of the commitment signed with the European Road Safety Charter, constantly brings out to the public opinion the issue of road safety and the importance of good signalling in traffic.

Road markings are not used for making the road look good in early spring. Through the articles published on the Drumul in siguranta weblog, the company attempts to emphasize both the role of road markings and that of traffic signs in cutting down the number of victims on the road.

SAFE ROADS FOR ALL

november 2022

Industrie Mica Prahova SA and Drumul in siguranta weblog are once again joining the Road Safety Week campaign initiated by Brake Foundation and held between November 14th and November 20th. This year’s theme is Safe Roads for All and is meant to reunite communities and professionals from different areas in order to reaffirm every person’s right to move safely on the roads. The central message of the campaign is that every person’s life matters on the road, no matter where he/she comes from or the transport means he/she chooses. The distributed materials cover actual themes such as: movement on rural roads, speed, careless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, but also include solutions regarding fleet management, children safe ride and the safety of other vulnerable categories such as byciclists or  motorcyclists. A special day – November 20th – is dedicated to commemorating traffic victims, thus participating in World Day of Rememberance for Road Traffic Victims.

Your Safety Matters Also In Traffic!

Drumul in siguranta weblog and Industrie Mica Prahova SA started the project called Your Safety Matters Also In Traffic!, an initiative meant to promote the safe behaviour of children in traffic.

Thus, over 500 children, as well as their parents and educators were initiated in the basic rules of safe road travel. This happened when delivering the brochure which included several simple traffic rules for the little pedestrians.

Also, considering the conclusions reached after the end of the campaign Your Safety Matters Also In Traffic! created by Industrie Mica Prahova SA for kindergarten and school children, the company continued the project and delivered a series of suggestions to the Ministry of Transport, requesting special attention to children safety on the road, through proper signalling of crosswalks nearby schools, but also through installing speed bumps in these areas.
