Club News: KAK influences traffic education in Sweden

Publication date: 21 September 2016

The Swedish Royal Automobile Club (KAK) is working to strengthen road safety with a focus on children and young people. In 2015, the Club noted negative outcomes when traffic education in schools is neglected at a parliamentary seminar 2015.

KAK invited representatives of government agencies, educational organisations, motoring organisations and industry to a conference on traffic education. The discussions were very fruitful and many of the organisations agreed to continue cooperation to strengthen traffic education

As a follow-up arranged KAK a call in on children's road safety during Almedalsveckan (an annual conference of politicians, industry and NGOs. Many good ideas emerged and parliamentary politicians offered concrete proposals for resolutions in parliament with a focus on:

  • Directing the transport department to work with children and youth road safety, including traffic education

  • Clarifying the school's mission on traffic education

KAK will follow up these issues and continue our work to improve children’s road safety.
