During the 2015-2016 school year, schoolchild of primary and secondary school in Porto Ceresio worked on the’road shapes project’ that Safety21 was pleased to sponsor providing the needed materials for its implementation. The designed templates are real signs that invite you to slow down, pay attention to pedestrian crossings, to respect the no entry signs especially near schools and on routes traveled by the boys.
Pupils have created them according to their imagination and a jury chose the most significant ones to turn them in this innovative signage: “The end result is a good job – said representatives of the Parents’ Committee, promoters of the good initiative – and we believe it can really improve the road safety of our territory on the routes to school “. “This project aims to improve safety on our roads – said the mayor of Porto Ceresio, Jenny Santi – and involved our kids in person on such an important issue, making concrete the road education concept.”
The result of the project was presented to the citizens in September 2016 in Porto Ceresio with the first installation of the “road shape.” The event was attended by the students of the involved classes with their parents, the mayor Jenny Santi and Safety21’s president, Domenico Mazzilli.
