“With the delivery of the first modules, the first initiative promoted by a company that combines sustainable mobility and road safety takes shape. Being supported by Legambiente, Miur and ACi-Sara safe driving centers is a sign of great trust and the support of the Traffic Police is a source of pride for Superpedestrian’s concrete commitment in terms of safety and for the development of this innovative project. aimed at students – he says Matteo Ribaldi, Link Italia’s Public Affairs & Business Development manager – The creation of Link4Schools makes it even more evident how the collaboration between public and private is, once again, the right and winning way for the pursuit of a common interest: the safety of different road users“.
For Daniela Stradiotto, general manager of the State Police and central director of the Specialties, “the culture of safe driving is a common value and spreading it must be a collective commitment, because the road belongs to everyone and each of us uses it. It is important that children understand the risk they face when using the scooter on the road : they must be aware that it is no longer the game they often played as children. It is a means of transport and as such must be conducted with the awareness that driving is not a joke, but a very serious thing. On this front we as the State Police have always been committed, through the Traffic Police, to root in young people the culture of living the road with attention and respect for the rules. The first protagonist of road safety is the user “.
