The road safety exhibition "Safely moving with my family!" was held in the "Mediterranean Cosmos" shopping center of Thessaloniki, between 6th to 25th of October 2017. The exhibition was organized by the Hellenic Police, in collaboration with the non profit organisation "Alliance for Greece", under the frame of the project "Road safety through eyes children", aiming to inform people of all ages towards road safety issues.
The exhibition was attended by 20,000 people, mainly children, parents, teachers, school traffic policeman, while on the last days special events were devoted to the information of professional drivers using a truck / bus simulator and heavy machinery simulators by Traffic Police Officers.
Small visitors were briefed and trained by Traffic Police officers also, in a special traffic park and drew their own road safety paintings. At the same time, adult visitors had the opportunity to get trained in accident prevention in transportation, via the use of high tech equipment, such as driving simulators, several simulation goggles, and a reaction testing device.
Smart Drive Ltd provided a passenger car simulator, adapted with a 5 heavy machinery simulator, a truck / bus simulator, 3 alcohol/fatigue/drug simulation goggles and a reaction testing device which correlates the driver's reaction time with the car speed and the road surface conditions and provides the total stopping distance during an emergency braking. Also a video developed with its own roll over car simulator, presenting the deadly consequences of a roll car accident for driver and passenger who are not wearing their seat belts.
