    European Traffic Education Contest 2022

    September 24, 2022 > September 26, 2022 Zadar, Croatia haphan@fia.com


    The 35th edition of the European Traffic Education Contest (ETEC) took place from 24 to 26 September in Zadar, Croatia
    at the kind invitation of Hrvatski Autoklub (HAK).

    19 teams from 18 European countries participated in the competition, including the 2 first-time participating teams from Ukraine and the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg.

    2022 winners of ETEC are AMSS (Serbia) coming in first place, LAMB (Latvia) was second, and UAMK (Czech Republic) was third.


    The European Traffic Education Contest (ETEC) aims to intensify traffic education in every country and thereby contribute to reducing the risk of children becoming involved in accidents on their bicycles. The Contest should encourage motoring and touring clubs to enhance or develop their own traffic education activities in their respective countries. Through this event the media and authorities should be made aware of the importance of this task.

    The Contest was created in 1986. It is held annually and takes place in September in the country of the host Club. At local, regional or national qualifying events, every participating Club selects a team of two girls and two boys aged between 10 to 12 years. Hence, this Event has the status of a European finale in which a regular 22 countries take part.

    The Contest takes up one full day, during which the children have to accomplish various theoretical and practical exercises. The best team wins a challenge cup. The contestants are not ranked individually.

    For general information on the contest and previous editions, please visit the European Traffic Education Contest webpage.
