Safety
Describe the problem that you want to address. How does this problem effect people in their daily lives?

In Albania the traffic route are fulfilled with a lot of any sort of vehicles. There is a lack of metro; trains are used very rarely, because of their poor conditions and infrastructure. The public transports in Albania are only buses for the city and in national roads. The other way of transportation is only the personal vehicles. For the abovementioned reason the number of vehicle in Albania is very high. The consequences of it are the high number of accidents. On the other hand there are the citizens which do not respect any way of circulation. They do not walk on the pedestrians’ path, do not respect the traffic light, do not respect the regular traffic way in one public transport etc.

Due to the high number of the accidents, the government has now put in force the new regulations for those who do not respect the circulation rules. The new system is the so called point in the driving license. The driver will be punished with different points according to his errors, until the number of points will be 20, his driving license will be removed. In this stage drivers are not very well informed about this new rule and the way of punishment.

 

Describe your proposed solution – How does your approach build on or add to more traditional ways of dealing with problem?

Our proposal is to build a website where citizens have the possibilities to play interactive games with the main focus learning the road signals and how to drive carefully. The game will be a learning tool to respect the adequate signs in the road. It will be divided in two parts as a driver and as a citizen. As a citizen you will know how to walk as a pedestrians in a safe mode, how to respect the vehicles and the traffic lights. The web page will offer the possibilities to know the data according the vehicle and the driving license. Anyone entering their personal data will get the information according their fines. With the implementation of this interesting idea we will help the citizens and the drivers to respect much more each other and to have a peaceful environment in our country. 

 

Which technologies are you planning to use and why? Please make reference to other similar uses of your proposed technology.

We are going to use the web based technologies like: HTML5, CSS3 and PHP. We will take in consideration that this website should be fully operational in the most used browsers like Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. To build a online web game we are going to use JavaScript and all the combinations of JavaScript and CSS3. As for the database we are going to rely on a MySQL database. One good example that has inspired us on this idea is also the website http://www.ahdr.info/nicosia/
