Today, at the Argentine Plaza in Podgorica, the Montenegrin Police Administration officially celebrated the Global Week of Security in Traffic.
Traffic police presented the funds, vehicles, and equipment used by traffic police officers in working with the citizens, the Police Administration said.
Chief of Traffic Safety Group Milika Perovic said that the traffic police held a series of educational and preventive activities during which, among other things, there was a visit to the kindergarten "Little Prince" in Podgorica to educate the children and talk about the basics of behavior in traffic.
"The traffic police officers shared information and educational fliers to the traffic participants, in which the facts mentioned reminded of why it is important to respect the regulations and the dangers which can be caused by the smallest recklessness in traffic, such as the fact that traffic accidents are the leading cause of the deaths of children between 5 and 13 years in Europe and that the correct use of child seats in the vehicle reduces the probability of fatal injuries during traffic accidents by 70 percent", the statement states.
Perovic said that marking the Global Week of Security in Traffic is an opportunity to remind us of the significant continuous contribution of traffic police to improving the road safety situation, since in the last ten years the number of deaths in traffic in Montenegro has been reduced by about 50 percent in the past ten years.
Montenegrin police are actively engaged in the celebration of the Global Week of Security in Traffic, which the United Nations this year marks from 6th to 12th May under the slogan "Respect the regulations, save lives".
