The College of Applied Technical Sciences “Tempulli” and the Kosovo Association of Motorization “AMRKS” in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and supported by the Council for Safety on Road Traffic, Kosovo Police, Prishtina Municipality and Kosovo Forum for Road Safety this year organized the fifth edition of the traditional activity “Road Safety”.

Unlike the previous four years where the activity was focused only on primary and lower secondary schools, this year it was extended to upper secondary schools from different municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo.

The implementation formula of this edition is the same as in the previous years: theoretical part (testing of students in schools) and the practical part (bicycle race).

27 March until 31 March 2017

Theoretical part (Upper Secondary Schools, 11th and 12th grade)

27 high secondary schools from different municipalities of the Republic of Kosovo (Gjakova, Gjilan, Drenas, Junik, Klinë, Peja, Podujeva, Prishtina, Prizren, Viti) participated in the theoretical part.

The working groups visited the participating schools (whose selection was made by MEST) and questionnaires were distributed to students for completion. Their testing aimed at assessing students’ knowledge on traffic rules signs.
