Special road police operation “Attention – Children” is being held across Russia ahead of a new school year
A special road police operation “Attention – Children” is being held across Russia ahead of a new school year. The main aim of the operation is to prevent road traffic accidents involving children. Thousands of children are getting back to their home cities and towns after long summer holidays, during which they have become disaccustomed to intensive traffic and have forgotten road safety rules, the head of the road safety department of the Russian Interior Ministry told Tass. “According to statistical data, the number of road accidents involving teenagers increases at the beginning of the school year,” Viktor Kiryanov stressed. He said that owing to measures taken by road police this year, the number of road accidents involving underage as well as the number of children killed or injured in road accidents, has declined. “However, the level of road traffic accidents involving children is still high. Every day 60 to 70 children receive injuries and up to six children are killed in road accidents,” he stressed. Most road accidents involving children, particularly bicyclists, happen because they don’t know even basic road traffic rules and have no experience on the road, Kiryanov added. Lack of parents’ attention and control as well as insufficient attention to teaching traffic rules at kindergartens and schools are among the reasons behind that, he stressed. Ahead of a new school year, road police check road marks and road signs, as well as technical condition of traffic lights near all schools and kindergartens. Road police also tighten control over drivers driving past schools or kindergartens. Besides, in September road police inspectors will visit all Russian schools to hold seminars on road safety rules, the specialist emphasized.
