Overview of measures and structural conditions of the prevention measures currently implemented in the German federal states for road safety in educational institutions

Project No. FF-FP 0448

Status:

ongoing

Aims:

Risk groups of schoolchildren involved in road traffic accidents as well as priority topics for road safety education in schools are identified (milestone (MS) 1).

An overview of current school prevention work on the topic of road safety will be provided. Measures and strategies are identified and documented by means of a form to be developed in the course of the project. Structural conditions at the level of educational administration and organisation are explicitly taken into account (MS 2).

An overview of quality criteria for the evaluation of prevention measures and target-oriented structural conditions in the field of road safety in educational institutions will be developed (MS 3).

The catalogue of criteria developed as MS 3 is used to evaluate the measures/structural conditions compiled in MS 2 and to identify potentials for optimisation in the implementation of measures (MS 4).

Activities/Methods:

Work package 1: Identification of risk groups of schoolchildren who have been involved in road traffic accidents as well as priority topics for road safety education in schools by means of literature research and the evaluation of accident data.

Work package 2: Development of a systematic overview of prevention measures and strategies of road safety work in schools by means of systematic internet research and expert interviews (representatives for road safety education on the level of the German federal states, school representatives for road safety, and other experts).

Work package 3: Development of quality criteria for the evaluation of prevention measures and structural conditions for road safety in schools by evaluating existing criteria catalogues and expert interviews from the field of quality development.

Work package 4: Creation of an overview of good prevention measures and structural conditions based on the researched prevention measures and developed quality criteria.
