Participants can practice their new skills in kids’ cars and on the bikes provided. The mobile Junior Campus, which visitors will find at Garage Square, consists of a BMW car with an eight-meter trailer containing a lab.

Junior Campus visitors will also get a chance to learn about the history of cars, take a crack at a traffic code tests, and use car and bicycle simulators to see how various weather and road conditions can affect driving.

Road safety workshop for children under 6

Even the youngest children are part of road traffic: they cross the road with their parents, use public transport, and learn to ride a bike. That’s why it is best not to postpone their road safety education until they grow up and teach them about the street, traffic, and how to behave in the city in the first years of their life.

In this workshop children will learn to

– Understand traffic lights
– Use crossings and find their way at crossroads
– Safely ride a bike
