Werner Kraus ÖAMTC President, said: “Road accidents can happen at any time and on any street. This is why it is essential that children understand and respect the rules of the road. I am very proud that ÖAMTC was the host for the 30th anniversary of this event and for the first year in which it has received funding from the European Commission.”
