The ‘Bringing Safety on the Roads’ (BriSaR) project focuses on supporting prison and probation staff to work effectively with offenders convicted for road crimes.
The Kick-off meeting of BriSaR project took place in Sinaia, Romania, on the 12th and 13th of December 2019.
By adapting an existing programme in Portugal (STOP – Responsibility and Safety, targeted
at Road Code violators) and updating it in line with the research evidence and offender
expectations, the project aims to:
1) Reduce convictions for road traffic offences through an evidence-based intervention
(including offences like driving without a license, driving an unregistered car, driving a car
with forged registration plates, driving dangerously or drunk driving);
2) Encourage the change of attitudes and behaviours associated with drunk driving to the
voluntary adoption of alternative behaviours that prevent recidivism;
3) Generate more public awareness regarding road safety.
