Study on Safe Way to School in Italy


Every year thousands of accidents which occur involving children aged between 2 and 14 years are recorded mainly on the way to school. The way to school is the first and most important approach for children with the use of urban space. The most evident response to the risk of road is provided by the parents' behavior: they go to school with their children. Last statistics have shown that in Italy on the urban road network accidents and injuries have grown over 80% and a little less than 2/3 of deaths from road accidents. The described situation is heavy with pedestrian-vehicle conflicts, in which speed is the main factor in the severity of the accident, especially when children are involved.
