Road safety awareness day for 70 children


Last Wednesday, the SXM Road Safety Association chaired by Thierry Verres organized a day dedicated to road safety, for the benefit of the youth of Quartier d'Orléans.

The purpose of the association is to supervise and support young people from school in their adult life, to promote social ties as well as the development of civic values ​​through school projects, to fight against dropping out of school, the prevention of delinquency, the problems of integration and professional integration.

This Wednesday, 70 children and adolescents, aged 6 to 16, benefited from road safety awareness including:

• Knowledge of the highway code adapted to 6/11 years and 12/16 years,

• road track,

• fight against addictions (alcohol and drugs),

• initiation into training for the Road Safety Certificate (driving a scooter) using a two-wheel simulator and expert advice from the Saint-Martin firefighters.

The associations of Quartier Orléans, the college of Quartier Orléans, SEMSAMAR, the family protection brigade (National Gendarmerie), as well as the firefighters of Saint-Martin made a strong contribution to this event.

On this occasion, an operation to hand over reflective vests to participants was carried out during this day. The Prefecture of Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy offered some 30 reflective vests, thus allowing children and adolescents to be more visible on the axes of Saint-Martin.

Good visibility for the driver in traffic is essential. This is supervised in order to guarantee its safety, that of its passengers and other road users. Several “road safety” days are scheduled by ASR SXM. Other distributions of reflective vests will be organized in this context.
