The learning environment “Aga mina, liiklen ohutult” was developed by MTÜ Aga Mina and the Road Administration. The website is mainly aimed at the parents of small children and the teachers who deal with the children and their parents. The purpose of the learning environment is to support parents and teachers in ensuring the safety of children and helping them become polite road users. The 360° traffic safety project focuses on three important topics: traffic safety on the way to preschool and school, in the yard or when crossing a road or railway. Browsing the website and using different media gives parents important information or they can use it with the children to study different traffic situations and discuss safe traffic.
