National Road Safety Action Plan hails improvements to Azerbaijan’s roads
In 2017 the National Automobile Club of Azerbaijan (AMAK) used the EASST Road Safety Education Pack to introduce key road safety messages to over 800 children. School children across five pilot schools in Baku were invited to take part in five rounds of competition where demonstrated their road safety knowledge and produced materials to promote road safety.
In 2018, the President approved a 5-year Road Safety Action Plan. Working within the mandate of the State Plan, AMAK have been working to integrate the EASST Road Safety Education Pack within the school curriculum. It is now used widely in schools across the country.
In addition to their work on road safety education, AMAK have been working closely with the Road Traffic Police to analyse crash data and map child pedestrian black spots across the city. Once the key blackspots are identified, EASST and AMAK will work together with road engineering experts to identify practical infrastructure improvements that could mitigate child pedestrian risk.
