MOSCOW, November 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s traffic police suggests raising fines for violation of rules regulating transportation of children by cars to the level of prices on child car restraints, Deputy Head of Russia’s traffic police Vladimir Kuzin said on Thursday.
It is necessary to include this kind of violation in the Administrative Code /presently, this violation is regulated by general rules for passenger transportation/, he said.
“Besides, possibly, to make the fines close to the price of child car restraints,” he added.
Surveys show that over 50 percent of parents realize it is necessary to use child car seats, he continued.
“But there are those who believe that a baby is safer if the mother holds it, but crush tests from major car companies prove the opposite.”
On Thursday, the traffic police and the healthcare ministry organize an action called Show the Child Seat and Get the Baby. The action is organized in Moscow’s Science Center of obstetrics, gynecology and perinatology, named after academician V.I.Kulakov. To parents who come to take home their newly born babies, the traffic police and medical staff offer a free rent of car cradles.
