From Monday — on the roads of Simferopol, the operation «Pedestrian. Crosswalk!»

CrimeaPRESS reports:

In order to prevent road accidents involving pedestrians, from March 13 to March 23, the traffic police of Simferopol will carry out a set of preventive measures “Pedestrian. Crosswalk!».

As clarified in the State traffic inspectorate, this year in Simferopol 9 traffic accidents related to collisions with pedestrians were registered. In these accidents, 1 person died and 9 received various injuries.

The traffic police appeals to all road users:

Drivers should be extremely careful in places where pedestrians may appear on the roadway and remember that in adverse weather conditions pedestrians may have limited visibility (hood, etc.), which can lead to a traffic accident, keep a safe distance, choose a speed mode taking into account weather conditions.

Pedestrians should follow the rules of safe behavior on the road:

— be as vigilant as possible at night and in bad weather. Before entering the roadway, stop, make sure that there is no transport, and if there is, then make sure that the driver sees you and lets you through;

— in the absence of sidewalks, move along illuminated sections of roads and only towards traffic;

— when driving at night or in conditions of insufficient visibility, give preference to light-colored clothing, be sure to use retroreflective elements, because thanks to retroreflective elements, pedestrians in conditions of poor or insufficient visibility are provided with safety on the road;

— remember that the braking distance of the vehicle on wet or slippery surfaces increases significantly.
