5. Project description
Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

There are over 330 million drivers in China, and as many as 283 million motor vehicles. As cars have rapidly become ubiquitous in cities around China, traffic accidents have become one of the leading causes of death, due in part to a lack of basic knowledge about traffic safety and to defensive driving strategies.

The Road Safety Education Project involves nine primary schools and one university across three cities of China: Chongqing, Wuhan and Shangri-la. The project aims to educate young people and their communities about road safety and thus to reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents. This project is part of the FIA’s Action for Road Safety Initiative and is jointly launched by CAMF and RCE Greater Shangri-la.
