Summary

850 people die on the roads in Lebanon yearly. 90% of crashes are caused by reckless road user behavior. To improve road user behavior and raise awareness on road regulations, Kunhadi gives interactive road safety sessions in schools, universities and community groups. These sessions are designed to reach 4 different age groups, based on their needs & use of the road. They include short videos explaining the traffic law & 3 simulators for drunk driving, buckling-up & distracted driving.

Challenge

The fairly recent culture of road safety in Lebanon, coupled with lenient traffic law enforcement result in the loss of 850 lives yearly, which costs 5% of Lebanon's GDP. The age range most affected is youth aged 15 - 29 years (36% of traffic victims), although a simple change of behavior could save thousands: 90% of traffic crashes in Lebanon are caused by reckless behavior, notably excessive speed, drunk driving, distracted driving and pedestrian regulation.

Solution

By raising awareness on the safe behavior and the traffic law, road users will learn the leading causes of fatal traffic crashes and how to avoid them: they will learn about the risks of excessive speed, how to cross the road safely, dangers of drunk driving, risks of distracted driving, and how to influence their parents to adopt safe behaviors and follow the traffic law.

Long-Term Impact

At least 400 students will be aware of the most common dangers on the road and how to avoid them, which will keep them safe on the road and will arm them with arguments and facts to influence their friends and family members to adopt safe behaviors.
