Educational traffic day in Võru County


During the last weekend in September, SEB Charity Fund held an educational traffic day at the Traffic Town, in Võru County, for the children staying in shelters. More than a hundred children attended the event from across Estonia - Tallinn, Tartu, Ida-Viru County, Harju County and Viljandi County.

During the traffic education event the children learned through play how to safely and securely walk on the street. Juvenile police officer Elar Sarik explained the right-hand rule, what to keep in mind at an unregulated pedestrian crossing, how to be visible in the dark and what can happen while driving without a seatbelt fastened, etc. Talking with the police affirmed the children’s knowledge on reflectors and walking along a highway.

The children had the opportunity to ride electric cars in the traffic town, and they enjoyed that part the most; even refuelling the cars was one of their favourite activities. Visiting the punishment cell of the police left a vivid emotional impression on the children.

Before diving into the traffic, children’s knowledge was further affirmed together with the legendary traffic prevention officer Mare Arna by repeating the traffic signs and talking about the need for and meaning of the signs. The children tested the need for seatbelts, learned methods of providing first aid and so on. The children said that they learned what they should do when their friend gets in trouble, is about to die and how they can provide first aid. A painting was painted in collaboration with artist Navitrolla and the children, with the colours of the traffic light breaking the notion of a regular traffic light.
The event was also supported by the Estonian Road Administration, who provided study materials on traffic education and in addition every child received their own reflector.
