My hat is off to the local police in Cartagena, Murcia. The safety of children, at least in this locality, will be assured. The measure will be launched from October 1, coinciding with the start of the children's school year.
This measure, which hopefully would be followed by organizations in other localities, is one of the measures that make up the "To school by car" campaign, the purpose of which is to inform and raise awareness about the need and obligation that children should have to use approved systems fastening, for your better safety in cars.
This initiative will be carried out in the vicinity of the schools. To this end, the police will deploy a broad operation to cover both the entry and exit of children from schools, with special attention to the most conflictive areas. In the vicinity of some schools, it is even proposed to provide parking spaces for cars, thus facilitating access for drivers.According to data from the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), children continue to be the main victims in traffic accidents . In the past year, 50 percent of deaths of children under 14 years of age were the result of traffic accidents. The DGT reveals that 75 percent of these cases could have been avoided if children used a seat belt. Javier Herrero, Cartagena Security Councilor, insists that children under the age of 12 must use restraint systems correctly when traveling by car. If they don't use it properly, their parents will have to respond and pay a fine accordingly.Vilma Medina. Editor of our site
