Fiets4Safe warns young cyclists of traffic risks

About 50,000 secondary school students cycle every morning to school in the province of Overijssel. The Fiets4Safe project was launched as a result of the fact the young cyclists often underestimate the risks of dangerous behaviour.


  • The cycling behaviour of 12 and 13-year olds is the focus of this project. The approach adopted by the Fiets4Safe project is Teaching by Experience. During a performance in the form of a fictitious lawsuit, actors call for awareness of and understanding for other road users.
    Part of the program is to have youngsters correct each other and give positive feedback, in order that the effects of peer pressure and exemplary behaviour be addressed. The use of mp3 players and mobile phones while cycling will also be the subject of discussion.
    Pupils can then interact with the actors within the performance, so as to establish the norms of responsible behaviour. This contributes to a positive change in their behaviour.
    A video (sorry, in Dutch only) gives an impression of the project.
