An Evidence Led Approach
Collation of evidence:
Define the problem through
the systematic collection of
data
Evaluate interventions:
How effective under what
circumstances and for
whom
Implementation:
Scale up effective policy
and programmes
Identify causes:
Understand the problem and
who is at risk
Develop interventions:
Based on evidence and
research

Multi-Agency Approach
“Improved delivery efficiency and effectiveness
had also been achieved for school-based
investment, through multi-agency collaborative
working. Examples included the collaboration
with education departments, and the use of joint
funding for school travel plan advisors and
sustainable transport promotion”.

ROSE 25 Review - Europe
Main Pillars of RSE
• In-car safety for young children

• Practical child pedestrian training for young children
• Basic skills and traffic training for young bicyclists


• Higher level skills, risk-awareness and attitudes for children
as they transfer from primary to secondary education

• Diversified forms of interventions targeting awareness-raising,
attitudes, and self-evaluation skills for teenagers

ROSE 25 Review - Europe
In an overwhelming majority of EU countries the
school, and thus the teachers, are the main players in
RSE.
RSE is often perceived as an extra task, thus is at a
constant risk of being marginalised.

ROSE 25 Review – Europe
Main challenges
• RSE is at risk of being
marginalized
• RSE needs standardisation
• RSE systems require
coordination
• RSE needs evaluation and
quality control

children need, and how should
they learn it?

Definition of Road Safety Education
Road Safety Education (RSE) is – next to engineering and
enforcement – a key pillar of traffic safety work. RSE
summarises the totality of measures that aim at positively
influencing traffic behaviour patterns. RSE emphasises on:
1. Promotion of knowledge and understanding of traffic
rules and situations,
2. Improvement of skills through training and experience,
3. Strengthening and/or changing attitudes towards risk
awareness, personal safety and the safety of other
road users.
