School route safety. How parents can protect their children

The start of the school year is still a few weeks away, but the Road Traffic Safety Service has prepared and published a brochure with recommendations for schoolchildren and their parents.

The service suggests planning and checking the route your child will take to school. Parents should walk the chosen route with their children several times in both directions to understand dangerous places and think about alternatives.

The guidelines also include basic rules: don't cross the street in places where visibility is poor, make sure traffic has stopped, even if the light is green, and much more.

Another important tip is to make eye contact with the driver. In this way, the child can be sure that the driver has noticed him or her and will stop to let him or her pass. For a complete list of recommendations, visit the official website of the Road Traffic Safety Service.
