During the meetings road safety videos were presented to participants and at the same time discussions on importance of child seats, using pedestrian crossing by children, the role of parents in the awareness of children about road safety and adding road safety as a subject to curriculum were held.

During the discussions, parents highlighted the importance of including road safety sessions into the national education program. They also shared their concerns about missing traffic signs around schools, traffic lights near pedestrian crossing that do not function properly, and location of bus station that is far from schools as well as suggestions on how it all could be improved.
