Educating day in Võru County Traffic City (video added!)

14.10.2010

On 9 October the SEB Charity Fund organised an educating traffic day for shelter children in the Võru County Traffic City. Over a hundred children from eight different shelters in Tallinn, Tartu, Narva, Sillamäe, Kiikla, Pärnu and Harju County were present. The goal of the event was to teach the children, through games, how to get about safely and securely on the roads, how to make themselves visible at night, how to provide first aid in the event of accidents and what could happen if seatbelts are not used. We played traffic games to help children remember the rules.

For example, the right hand rule was explained, as was how to behave at pedestrian crossings, why we need traffic signs, seatbelts and reflectors and how important it is to use safety devices when in traffic. Mare Arna, well-known among children as ‘Mrs. Traffic’, taught them the basics of the road rules.

Representatives of the Võru police taught the children how to get around on the roads, and the kids were given the chance to have a closer look at a police car. A medic taught them how to give first aid in the event of an accident. They were also able to study seatbelts, headrests and weight stands and find out how important it is to wear a seatbelt. The Road Administration contributed to the event by presenting each child with a reflector.
