How do I sit correctly and safely in the saddle? How do I drive around curves on a scooter? What do the different traffic signs mean? At the new traffic training area on the outdoor grounds of Jacobs University Bremen, day-care and primary school children can gain confidence in handling their bicycles and scooters and learn which behavior is correct and important in road traffic. This includes foresighted and considerate driving as well as the correct assessment of traffic situations and dangers in road traffic. The training takes place on an excitingly designed traffic course.
On the very first day, two fourth grades of the primary school Alt Aumund practiced cycling. The youth traffic school was created by a joint initiative of Verkehrswacht Bremen-Nord and the working group "aber sicher", consisting of ADAC, ADFC, Police Bremen, Schulexpress, Sparkasse Bremen, Unfallkasse Bremen, and Landesverkehrswacht Jacobs University makes a part of its premises available for this purpose free of charge. The traffic training area in Vahr, which is used by many school classes from all over Bremen, serves as a model for the training area version in Bremen-Nord. Since the distances from Bremen-Nord to Vahr are very long, the working group "aber sicher" has looked for a place in the north of Bremen that is easily accessible for all local schools.
