In Kosovo, more than a hundred people are killed in road accidents every year and around fourteen thousand (14.000) were injured in 2015. A number of these people are handicapped for life. Many of the victims are young citizens, therefore this determines whether they will have permanent injuries or they will pass away. In order to substantially reduce accident and casualty problems in Kosovo, KUSA implemented the project “Traffic Safety”. The overall objective of the project was to raise awareness among drivers, pedestrians and traffic safety police officers regarding the topic. The project addressed the problem of Traffic Safety that citizens face every day aiming to establish sound, safe and sustainable road transport system.
In honor of the World Day of Remembrance of Road Traffic Victims, KUSA in cooperation with Kosovo Police, OSCE, and Kolegji “Tempulli”, organized an awareness campaign consisted of different activities taking place each day. As part of this awareness campaign, KUSA has created three video clips of injured persons whose main purpose was to raise awareness and enhance the care of citizens in traffic. Videos were broadcasted in all local TV channels, as well as different social networks. (Please find attached the links in the bottom of this description)
