The road to children’s safety

Many of us walk the streets every day. In a way, we're all participants in daily traffic. However, not all of us realize the importance of our awareness and of our behaviour. Attention is going to be brought to children, and everyone else, who don't understand the role and rules for their safety. We have also decided to put an accent on parking as that's also a part of traffic. As well as speedy driving, inappropriate parking plays a significant role in many car accidents.
