LEARN! Key Principles for Traffic Safety
and Mobility Education
This publication therefore sets out recommendations that should be implemented in all European countries, in order to ensure that everyone – and especially children and youngsters – receive high quality traffic safety and mobility education. They are accompanied by best practice examples that illustrate how these principles can be applied in practice.

LEARN! Report on the Status of Traffic Safety and Mobility Education in Europe
The report provides an overview of the status of traffic safety and mobility education across Europe from both a legal as well as a practical perspective. It sets out where in Europe such education is given, at what level (e.g. primary and/or secondary), if it is required by law, who teaches the course, and how the lessons are structured.
The report also looks at the road safety situation for children and youngsters as well as the EU’s role in traffic safety and mobility education, and examines mobility education from the wider perspective of health and sustainability.
The Norwegian Council for Road Safety’s Model for Behaviour Modification
The NCRS’s Model for Behaviour Modification is a tool for optimal planning and implementation of programmes and for what can be evaluated. Their model combines key aspects of five of the most recognised and applied theories of behaviour modification: the theory of planned behaviour, health-belief-model, theory of interpersonal behaviour, elaboration-likelihood model, and the transtheoretical modal of change.
The report explains how the model can be applied in practice, and provides a general guidance template as well as two examples.
Reducing Child Deaths on European Roads (ETSC PIN Flash 34)
This ETSC report examines the latest data on child road deaths from across Europe. As well as showing the differences that still exist between countries, it gives examples of policies that have led to faster progress and areas for improvement.
The report furthermore sets out the main measures for reducing the risks to children including vehicle safety, child restraint systems, improved infrastructure, mobility policies and education, helmet use, pre-hospital care and licensing of young drivers who, in some countries, are able to ride a moped or scooter at the age of 14.
