During many years in the Barnaul Cooperative College there are systematic work on prevention of children's road and transport traumatism.
The work purpose — education of culture of behavior on the street, in transport and training of traffic regulations.
Training of students in Traffic regulations is intended to prepare the disciplined participant of the traffic capable to ensure personal security and safety of the people surrounding him in the conditions of the road and transport environment.
The main areas of work on prevention of road and transport traumatism are:
· organization of studying traffic regulations and bases of safe behavior on roads within disciplines of Fundamentals of Health and Safety and BZhD;
· organization and carrying out thematic class hours;
· organization of quizzes, actions and competitions.
These directions are implemented not only for the purpose of promotion of traffic regulations, but also to show how it is necessary to behave correctly on the road how to avoid road accident to remain safe to keep the life not to bring a trouble to the house.
Traffic rules (SDA) for children: road safety
Safety of pedestrians
Daily we are participants of traffic, acting as the pedestrian, the passenger or the driver. To be a pedestrian is very responsible. Safety on the road depends in total both on pedestrians, and on drivers. And risks are also present at both parties. The pedestrians crossing the street on red light or in not put place are quite often guilty of road accident. Some of them just forget that if you cross the road, it is necessary to look around because the car can unexpectedly appear from behind turn. And then will look already late in her party.
Annually in Russia about one thousand children aged up to 16 years perish, more than 20 thousand get injuries and wounds. At the same time, as world statistics of health care testifies, 90% of children get long mental injuries. Understand set of all road accidents (RA) for a certain period in which children and teenagers aged up to 16 years died and were wounded as children's road traumatism
Therefore both drivers, and pedestrians need to follow the basic rules at which the risk of the road accidents will decrease:
1) pedestrians have to move on sidewalks or walking paths, and at their absence — on roadsides;
2) at the movement on roadsides or the region of the carriageway in night-time or in the conditions of insufficient visibility the pedestrians are recommended to have at themselves objects with retroreflective elements and to provide visibility of these objects with drivers of vehicles;
3) pedestrians have to cross the carriageway on crosswalks, and at their absence — at intersections in the area of sidewalks or roadsides;
4) at unregulated crosswalks the pedestrians can come to the carriageway after estimate distance to the approaching vehicles, their speed and will make sure that transition for them will be safe.
To traffic regulations we are taught still since childhood and when we mature, at once we forget all elements. And the basic rule, perhaps, is survey of the road before transition to her opposite side. As this rule, but if it was observed by all pedestrians is banal, the road accidents would be less. Also it is impossible to cross the street in not put place even if you very much hurry.
At adverse weather conditions the pedestrians need to be extremely attentive! If on the street a rain or fog – visibility of the driver worsens several times. In such conditions it is difficult for driver to go. The distance necessary for a car stop, on the road, wet from a rain, increases. Therefore having only made sure in perfect security begin transition. Remember, the car can't instantly stop!
From January till September, 2020 in Altai Krai the number of road accident with participation of children increased by 1.7% (from 180 to 183) in comparison with the same period of last year. Three children died in these accidents, 194 were traumatized. At a press conference reported about it in traffic police of the region
The separate rule for pedestrians, as well as for drivers, the behavior on the road to ice time is. It is, whenever possible, desirable to move only on the sections of the road which are filled up with sand or on snow. During crossing of the road it is necessary to be extremely careful and to pass only to green light. Because if suddenly the car close appears to steal a march, covered with an ice crust, very risky.
Observance of these simple rules will help to reduce the probability of emergencies on roads. Remember, your safety and safety of the people surrounding you depends on your discipline on the road!
For the State traffic inspectorate work on prevention of accident rate with participation of pedestrians is one of priority activities, every third road accident in which people suffered or died, happens to participation of pedestrians.
Pedestrians – one of the most vulnerable categories of participants of traffic. In comparison with drivers, they are physically not protected, and the road accidents with their participation often become the tragedy – as a rule, the pedestrian gets severe injuries, including incompatible with life. Quite often because of ignorance of Traffic regulations or neglect the pedestrian becomes them responsible for road accident.

3. In places where there are no traffic lights, it is safe to cross the road on the underground or elevated crosswalk, and at their absence on pedestrian ("zebra").
4. If there is no crosswalk, it is necessary to go to the next intersection. If on proximity there is neither crosswalk, nor the intersection, cross the road on the shortest way.
