1. Competition Description

The ERSCharter contest invites young Europeans to create a message that will motivate youth to act in order to improve their safety on the roads. Only EU citizens between the ages 18 and 29 year are entitled to participate in the competition. The winning entry and prize will be awarded in accordance with these official rules.

2. Context

Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death globally among young people aged 15–19- year-olds. According to the WHO, the notion that road traffic crashes are unavoidable needs to be challenged and a pro-active, preventive approach to reducing death on our roads must be developed.
A number of factors increase the likelihood of road traffic injuries occurring, especially among young people. These include speeding, lack of helmet or seat-belt use and child restraint use, drinking and driving, and the lack of conspicuity. In addition, young people lack experience on the road, and, especially young men, are prone to be influenced by peer pressure and risktaking. Thus, young people pose a greater risk than other drivers to themselves, their passengers and other road users.

Road traffic injuries are thus a very serious health risk for young people around the globe and in Europe. Creative and effective ways of reducing the number of fatalities and serious injuries of young people on the world’s roads need to be found. Young people need to be protagonists and actively participate in raising awareness and preventing more deaths on the roads. The ERSCharter aims to encourage the youth in Europe to have their say and communicate among them about this issue through blog posts. Change will only be achieved by involving young people and ensuring their commitment.
