Safe school environments and routes

Safe to school

In Belgium, 14 children are involved in a traffic accident on the way to school every single day. That is why we actively create safer school environments and school routes. We turn kids into strong and confident road users.

Do we choose people or machines?

Let's get rid of chaos at the school gate

More and more parents take their child to school by car. This makes the area around the school more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Consequently, even more parents decide to take their child to school by car...

This is the reality many schools face today. Time to break that vicious circle. Time to make people realise that a school environment that prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists is much more pleasant for our kids.

A safe school environment goes further than just safety at the school gate. The routes to and from the school are just as important.
