Since August 2010, RSI "Panos Mylonas" is implementing a comprehensive program for Road Safety and Traffic Education, called “AVENUE (Actions for Vulnerable, Elderly, Novice drivers and road Users in Europe) for Traffic Safety”. Conceived and designed by RSI ‘Panos Mylonas’ with the support of 9 European organizations, the program was inspired by the idea of the Reference Centers for Road Safety (K.A.O.A - NESTs) which aim to reduce traffic accidents through a mix of theoretical and experiential training sessions, awareness-raising and campaigns as well as information-sharing and interaction with the public.
Through their interaction with NESTs, road users are allowed to experience road safety and can be gradually influenced to adopt essential road safety behaviors. The AVENUE program was elected 1st by the Special Evaluations Committee of the EU General Directions Office for Transportation. Since, it has been adopted by the EU and promoted as a good practice throughout Europe.
Road Safety National Center (National NEST), Cultural Centre “Hellenic World”
So far in Greece, RSI "Panos Mylonas" has created 3 such educational centers (NESTs): The Road Safety National Centre based in Athens and hosted until recently by ​​the Cultural Centre "Hellenic Cosmos" is aiming at promoting actions across the country and creating routes for training on road safety. The Local Centre hosted inside the Museum of Science and the University of Technology in Patras is serving the needs of citizens and institutions in the surrounding areas. Last but not least, the Mobile road safety Unit, which travels across the country, is covering needs in areas where experiential information using simulators and specialized personnel is difficult.
  Mobile Road Safety Unit - Local Road Safety Centre, University of Patras
All NESTs, being at the center of interaction with Road Safety, implement the best selected practices and innovative approaches applied worldwide. All citizens can be informed on Road Safety prevention, the rules they must never break  and try out our high-technology simulators, which make training more direct and effective.
The Centers use a set of best selected practices used in many European countries along with innovative programs developed by the Institute. Experiential training using advanced simulators and customized training programs are used for different age groups, workers at risk, delinquent youth, with active audience participation. Dozens of actions on road safety throughout Greece derive from Road safety Centers, with the participation and support of approximately 150 institutions nationwide.
