Employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate met with the future moms in the framework of the All-Russian social campaign “Without you it will not work!”.
Employees of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate came to the pregnant women in the day hospital of the State Healthcare Institution “Maternity Hospital No. 2 of Magnitogorsk”. The theme of the meeting was the safety of young passengers when traveling in the car.
At the beginning of the meeting, Nonna Heinz, the senior inspector of the road safety propaganda group, told the expectant mothers about an accident involving children in 2018.
As an example, the police captain led two accidents. In one of them, a four-year-old girl died because of the neglect of the transportation rules for a minor passenger, and in the second case, in a head-on collision of cars, a child restraint saved the life and health of the infant. Nonna Anatolyevna drew the attention of women to the importance of using a car seat from the first days of a child’s life, starting with the very first trip from the maternity hospital to the apartment.
Olga Shulman, an inspector of the road safety propaganda group, also told women about the existing car seat groups. They need to choose depending on the weight and height of the child and better new. After all, buying a used, you can not be sure that it has not been in a traffic accident. As a result of the accident, the seat frame can get deformed, which means that such a child restraint system will not ensure the safety of the child during a trip in the car.
During the meeting, the police showed pregnant women a video in the framework of the “By the Rules” campaign, describing possible adverse consequences for a child who rides in a car without a car seat. As well as an informational and educational video "Obstetrician" of the All-Russian social campaign "Without you it will not work!".
By the way, five video stories were prepared within the last action. Each one is about baby safety. The main characters are not chosen by chance. They affect the safety of the child from different angles.
Also, the traffic police offers to view the video "Road Engineer". In it, road infrastructure engineer Ivan Novikov talks about those 10-15 kilometers that can save a child’s life, or take her away.
“How fast can you drive under sign 60? Most will reply: „80!“. And outside the city – 110 or 90? Actually 90! Excess of 5-10 km several times increases the stopping distance and the risk of death of children. Are you ready to win seconds and endanger the life of a child? All signs are set depending on the surrounding conditions, ”- this is what design engineer Ivan Novikov, who took part in the social campaign“ Without you, will not work! ”Says.
