Child car seats and pedestrian safety

In 2018, children’s road safety was high on the agenda in Moldova. In April the Moldovan Parliament passed a resolution that introduce the EASST Road Safety Education Pack in the national curriculum, making sure all children receive relevant and age-appropriate road safety education. In addition, the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM) launched an innovative project to recycle child car restraints for to low-income families through the web-platform baby4baby.org, and advocated for safer roads through their campaign, ‘Be careful at crossings!’. The campaign includes pavement warning messages ahead of crossings across Moldova reminding pedestrians to ‘Hold your child’s hand!’ and ‘Look left, then right!’.
