Traspatràs is a show that complements the educational task on road safety carried out by many local police officers all across Catalonia.

This play conveys education messages on road safety and civility by using magic, music, clowning, and balloon figures.

In fact, the primary objective of the show is to arouse student’s interest in road safety.

Traspatràs also reinforces some important aspects of prevention and civility.
