Georgia | Momavlis Taoba - Civic Education Program | 1 Mar 2019

Students of Tbilisi public school # 213 conducted the survey to determine road and car accidents nearby the school and number of victims affected by those incidents. Survey results showed that there are no road signs to the school territory and that drivers and pedestrians are often violating the traffic rules. 
In order to solve the problem, students prepared the project. In the frame of the project, Auto - School representative conducted information sessions for students about the traffic rules and signs.  Representative of patrol police from Tbilisi Police Department of Old Tbilisi District led the session on traffic rules. To address low level of public awareness on traffic rules among population, school students distributed information fliers in the community. For the students of elementary classes, the quiz tournament on road signs and road safety issues were conducted.
At the end of the project, the road signs were placed and Zebra crossing was drawn up around the school territory by Tbilisi City Hall's transport service and private company "Gzajvaredini" Ltd. Later on, students painted the road cross themselves.
