Everything about smartphones and children in traffic

Thursday, June 15th, the very first webinar of Veilig Verkeer Nederland (National organization for stimulating safety in traffic) took place. In a very interactive way, Cindy Esseling (Communication Specialist) and Cécile Collast (Educational Specialist) from VVN presented a webinar with the theme "Smart" in traffic.

Smartphone in top 3 causes of a traffic accident
There is much going on about using mobile phones in traffic. The use of smartphones while participating in traffic is in the top 3 causes of a serious traffic accident. Therefore, Dutch Minister Schultz of Infrastructure and Environment wants to even ban smartphone use on a bicycle.

Interactive webinar using polls and chats
In this webinar of Veilig Verkeer Nederland (VVN), parents involved in traffic lessons at school are informed about the distractions in traffic. They were also interactively involved in the presentation. The presenters made various polls to the participants, so that knowledge about the subject could be tested directly. In addition, the participating parents were asked to indicate via the chat functionality which tips they have themselves to inform young people about the safe use of a mobile phone in traffic. The presentation and interaction were interchanged with informative videos including a specially for VVN made video about "safe from primary to secondary school" with the cooperation of the Dutch YouTuber Yarasky.

The webinar (in Dutch) is available here for free.
