When the police in the last week went to target to spot offences in traffic on the routes to school in europe, were significantly fewer drivers caught with a heavy foot on the accelerator compared to last year.
3016 drivers drove too fast in the course of week 2, while in the same week in 2018 was around 4700 drivers who got fined for the move. Thus, there was printed about 1500 fewer speeding tickets on the country's schools.
the Figure is still too high, says Christian Berthelsen, policewoman at Rigspolitiets National Færdselscenter.
however, He is pleasantly surprised by the development.
- It comes actually a little behind me. In the positive sense of the word. It shows that drivers actually have started to slow down by schools. In each case, compared to the same period last year, he says.
On the other hand, several parents have been punished for not to buckle their children well enough fixed in the car. 56 children were not clamped, and it is a serious matter.
- It can mean the difference between life and death, so we encourage all parents to buckle their children safely fast, says Christian Berthelsen.
It costs 2000 crowns, and a clip in the driving licence, if you have a child in the car without seat belt or car seat.
