The aim of our initiative is to increase the sensitivity of experts from key institutions to the safety of pregnant women and children in the car. Through our initiative, we will give the opportunity to the invited representatives of the Ministry of Interior - Traffic Police (control body), State Agency "Road Safety" (national coordination unit for road safety) and MBAL "Nadezhda" (leading hospital for women''s health in Bulgaria), within the framework of a three-day study visit, to meet with various experts on road safety and child safety in the car, as well as with their fellow traffic

Summary of the results

1. An exchange of ideas and good practices between Bulgarian and Norwegian experts related to child safety in the car. 2. Improved knowledge of key institutions for the introduction of sustainable good practices in ensuring child safety in the car. 3. Increased motivation to introduce sustainable good practices to ensure child safety in the car. 4. Established partnership between Bulgarian and Norwegian institutions, organizations and experts related to child safety in the car, with potential for long-term successful cooperation. 5. Proposed changes in the Bulgarian legislation concerning the safety of pregnant women and children in the car. In addition, after the return from Norway, Bulgaria also introduced the practice of notifying traffic violations by SMS, e-mail or Viber. It is possible that the visit to Norway has something to do with this innovation – even if the idea did not originate there, it was certainly confirmed as a good and working practice by the Scandinavian colleagues.
