Road traffic accidents are the world’s leading cause of death among 15-19 year-olds. Over 350,000 young people worldwide are killed on the roads each year. This congress will deal with the most important facts about young people and road safety and look at possible innovative solutions to make traffic safer for them. Important issues which will be discussed are communication with and through young people, lifestyle, the peer group approach, gender differences, accompanied driving, political agenda setting and best practices.
