15th Panhellenic Road Safety Week (21-27 March 2022) “Youth and Road Safety”
 15th Panhellenic Road Safety Week (21-27 March 2022)  “Youth and Road Safety”
For the 15th consecutive year, Road Safety Institute (R.S.I) “Panos Mylonas” is launching, together with the Hellenic Institute of Transportation Engineers (H.I.T.E), the support of the “HELLENIC ASSOCIATION of TOLL ROAD NETWORK” with the distinctive title “HELLASTRON”, the Alliance for Safety and Culture on the Road “Roads to the Future”, and relative institutions and Organisations, the Panhellenic Road Safety Week, held under the auspices of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
 
Throughout this week, relative bodies of our country join forces for the promotion of critical road safety and mobility issues while, at the same time, information, educational, and institutional activities take place.
 
Aim of this initiative is to inform, raise awareness, and educate citizens of all ages for the prevention and reduction of road traffic crashes which remain a global issue and obstruct the country's progress.
 
On the occasion of the European Year of Youth (2022), this year's activities will revolve around "Youth and Road Safety" and will focus on two of the most critical factors for road traffic crashes in youth: distracted driving and drink-driving. Road traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for children and young people 5-29 years worldwide.
 
To this day, with the support of institutions and Organisations, as well as companies with proven social responsibility, more than 245.000 Primary and Secondary students have been trained by R.S.I on traffic and mobility issues and responsible road behavior as pedestrians, cyclists, and future drivers.
