WATCH OUT!

It's obvious that in today's society, road safety is a huge issue both for drivers and for pedestrians. Car crashes that happen in Turkey are mostly due to technology use while driving or walking. These are the risky and irresponsible behaviors which we should avoid. Our project covers both sides of the story and tries to raise awareness of road safety, first in our community and later globally.
