WHO IS RESPONSIBLE YOUNG DRIVERS?
Since our founding in 1989, Responsible Young Drivers is committed to creating road safety awareness amongst young people. We believe that the best approach is a peer to peer dialogue, which is why our young volunteers are involved in our road safety awareness activities. We alert youth to road safety issues without being condescending. We accomplish this with the help of our young volunteers, entertaining and educational activities and positive messages. Although our main target is a younger audience, we give everyone a chance to benefit from our projects. Check out our local activities here. (lien).
