The Government of La Gomera this week ratified its commitment to the European Road Safety Charter, made up of more than 2,300 entities and associations, with the aim of contributing to the improvement of road standards and culture.
This is the second Canary Island to join this initiative promoted by the General Directorate of Mobility and Transport of the European Commission.
This commitment of membership includes five areas of action that are included in a plan for safety and sustainable mobility for elderly people, tourism, transport, sports and young people.
Under this framework, activities, such as road safety workshops, training courses for professionals in the transport sector and conferences with entities and groups, will be carried out.
Special attention is paid to school children for whom theoretical and practical training is planned by explaining regulations for the use of bikes, emergency situations and first aid workshops.
