The Brabant Road Safety Label (BVL) has been introduced in Brabant in 1997: a project with the intention to improve road safety among children and youths by paying structural attention to traffic education in schools.
Since 1997 the province of Noord-Brabant has implemented the project Brabant Road Safety Label (BVL) to improve road safety among children by paying structural attention to traffic education in schools.
For school-aged children in the Netherlands the bicycle is an important means of transportation. BVL is a road safety quality mark schools can obtain by meeting a number of criteria, both educational and extracurricular (e.g. safe school environment, practice-based traffic education and sufficient parental participation).
