The main idea of this project is to promote the awareness of drivers who have risky behaviors that increase the statistics of traffic accidents on the roads, of the southwest of the State of Panamá. 



Safe Driving: a small action can save a life

Through some debates we realized  driving without qualification, high accident rates for traffic violations are present daily in our community. In this way we identified a serious problem in our school community that corresponds to the theme "safe direction". Through this result, we have chosen to explore in our action the project Your Ideas, Your Initiatives the issue of traffic violations and their effects on the safe driving.

The focus of our project was improving the road safety of the children with special need of the AMCIP institution.  We identified problems regarding the school signalization that put these children in risk. We have created a proposal to improve the signalization to be sent to the City Municipal Hall, we created playful activities to educate these children on safe traffic dynamics and we made a awareness action in the street where this institution is located distributing 1500 leaflets. Also, we organized a lecture in our school regarding accidents prevention.

Safe Cycle Routes : possibility of mobility for the city of Campo Largo

After analysing the streets of the city of Campo Largo, we took notice of the lack of cycle paths, which hinders the mobility of cyclists in everyday situations such as going to work, school, leisure, among others. From the observation carried out internally at the Sesi Campo Largo school it was possible to detect the low rate of students who use the bicycle as a means of transportation together with other residents, and we used this information with the intention of optimizing the urban space by means of cycle paths that help in the traffic and safety of the population.

The growing problem with old vehicles

     In Brasil consumers who acquire new vehicles, have the concept of doing maintenance only during the warranty period of the vehicle. After the warranty period, they never repair their vehicles anymore, leaving them circulating without the ideal maintenance for the safety of the transit.

    The Project searches for an ideal vehicle deal in which a periodic maintenance is included and with cheap prices for both sides, fulfilling that the same vehicle can be driven safely for the user and society.

EduCAR - Traffic changes when we change.

We made a research, observing 2500 vehicles and making surveys and our results showed us that drivers have critical risk behaviors like not using the seatbelt, drinking and driving, exceed the speed limits and not respect the pedestrians crosswalks. We decided to make a campaign to educate drivers and make them aware of their responsability in traffic and how their attitudes and behaviors are decisive.

Since the project was presented to us, we started thinking about risky situations in traffic, and with data analysis (such as the local news and an online form given to local community) we realized that mobile phone usage was among the top ten causes of traffic accidents in our city. With that in mind, we had the idea of using “ride app drivers” for our project, considering that they use their phones while driving, and, therefore, are more likely to have risky situations or accidents.

Traffic Education: this is learned from an early age

It is possible to perceive the problem regarding accessibility and road safety by ourselves. Adult community does not put into practice the knowledge already acquired in relation to traffic. Considering that children have greater ease of learning we thought it was appropriate to introduce this theme in the classroom, through playing activities that encourage children to be responsible road users.



The present project aims to discuss new means of urban mobility, taking as a reference, a public road to be adapted, Rua do Catete.

Traffic safety

The number of accidents in transit is very high as a result of the stress in daily life and the lack of responsibility in transit. In our video we address some of the risky behaviors that cause traffic accidents such as distractions, alcohol consumption, the use of the seat belt, passengers' behaviors that interfere with the driver's concentration.
