Welcome.
Today, we want to recommend to those who come to this blog, the newspaper article The Signey Mornign Herald who present a very interesting reflection of how possibly "bloody" campaigns as an attempt to catch the attention of public road users, are not so effective.

Read the Child Declaration

Los niños de todo el mundo inspiraron esta Declaración Niño. Ellos expresaron sus pensamientos y temores acerca de viajar en las carreteras. Dijeron que lo que necesitan para mantenerse seguros en las carreteras.
En un esfuerzo conjunto, los expertos del mundo también esbozan medidas que se deben tomar. Juntos hacemos un llamado a los tomadores de decisiones en todo el mundo a tomar medidas y proteger a los niños. Salvemos Vidas niños. 
Lea la  Declaración de Niños  para la Seguridad Vial. 
Cada día más de 500 niños y niñas pierden la vida en accidentes de tránsito en todo el mundo. Miles de personas están heridas. Apoyo a la campaña firmando la declaración. Juntos vamos a hacer un llamado a la acción sobre la seguridad vial!

Recommendations for participating in a #seguridadvial TweetUp November 15th




Recommendations for participating in a #seguridadvial TweetUp

1- Every phrase, advise, idea or sentence must include the label assigned for the event


For November 15th, 2013 the label is #seguridadvial (preview to the "International day for Street Transit victims")


2- Tweeters must not write disrespectful or hatred messages nor post gore images, or make unfounded accusations. They must always respect local laws even in cases of perpetrators of violent transit accidents.

3- Posting your tweets is a completely free activity, its a citizen´s right and maybe even a duty and they will be the creation of each one of you. Don´t waste this oppotunity to reach the conscience, the heart and the minds of the people and even the authorities.

4- Given that it is a free will activity, you can allow yourselves to be creative, friendly and maybe even spicy with your tweets. Do not limit yourselves.

5- These will be appropriate opportunities to remember friends and family who may no longer be with us because of street transit accidents. International day for Street Transit Victims is commemorated every year on the third Sunday of November and this year will be on the 17th.

6- If you wish to send several tweets, allow some time in between them so you don´t cluster your follower´s accounts and also to allow for them to answer back and make comments on your messages. To find out if someone has indeed answered or commented, go to the upper bar and click on @Conecta. These are simple examples and everyone is free to write up their tweet as they wish.

Its a great opportunity to get the local and regional authorities involved and call their attention in your tweets. Give them ideas and show initiatives on the subject or even point out to transit problems in your neighborhood or commute areas.


This activity is for everyone and we are all part of the street transit system regardless of wether you are a mother, father, student, a professional, a Kraft laborer, business man, entrepreneur... we are all affected by the anarchy or lack of structure in the transit system both at a financial level as at a emotional level. Our health is affected by it physically and mentally. We can also be part of the needed solutions.
        Contribute, Ask, Learn

 Wish you all success!!

Welcome to this life road that we can create together

Toni Donato Bolis - do not drive distracted!

And on Saturday it was the sad 1 yr anniversary of the crash that stole the loves of Toni Donato Bolis and her unborn child Ryan, who was to be born in 2 days because of a distracted driver. We must stop these tragedies from occurring to any more innocent victims...
