Based on the previous observation of traffic participants in our city Krusevac, we can conclude that a big percentage of participants in traffic, as a driver behave improperly. Observing students ( 17-19 years) in our school and outside as well, we noticed that a lot of them use alcohol and other psychoactive substances. We wanted to present a problem in our city because, based on the last years analysis of casual accidents, it has been established that the use of alcohol while driving  were the second most important factor of causing accidents.

The ideas

Alcohol driving under the influence of alcohol contains the greatest risk for the occurrence of an accident. The risk of participation if alcohol concentration in the body, the risk of fatal accidents increases. The risk increases  from 20 to 60 times, if the driver has over 1,5ml of alcohol in the body. Also, drunk drivers have 40 times more risk of accidents with injured persons and about 160 times more risk of accident with dead people. Our project were consisted of making and sharing flyers in all high schools, all in purpose raising awareness of the traffic participants. We also interviewed students of the final grades of our school. The purpose of analyze questionnaire was to determine the attitudes of the interviewed persons about driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and psychoactive substances.

The initiatives

We made a poster which we've been put in the central hall of our school. The poster contained pictures and messages intended for participants in the traffic. We made a short video about a group of teenagers who wanted to show how they should and how they shouldn’t behave in traffic. We made a video recording a scene in a café as a couple of teenagers are consuming alcohol and after that they wind up with a car. The video was intended to make it clear that teenagers themselves choose which ones to choose.
