Pedestrians are also road users, not a flock of sheep ...

... not always in fact it turns out this way, especially at the busy intersections of the city, and therefore the State Traffic Inspectorate of Samara together with the regional public organization "Samara Taxi Club" held a large-scale preventive measure yesterday at one of the most emergency intersections of the city: Avenue Maslennikov - Michurin Street. I will say more - this is the only regulated intersection in the city, where at a signal all traffic lights at once pedestrians cross the road at the same time in all directions, but only along the zebra, and not diagonally at all, although it is even difficult to explain to some (usually adults) applying the loudspeaker on the patrol car. So I suggest to count the rams before bed ...

1. As you can see (at the moment), the red signal of the traffic light is intended for transport, and green for people.The drivers, according to the traffic rules, stop in front of the "zebra", but the lambs do not understand these gestures and run to where there is a gap ...

2. My grandfather took a picture of his bike and hoped to the last that an adult man knew that he had to cross the road, and not pass ...

3. In vain I was hoping, apparently grandpa is in a hurry somewhere ...

4. So it should be ideally - pedestrians clearly follow the rules of the road ...

5. But where to go without sheep? ADULT BARS, who in this way set a bad example for children, including !!!

6. At the appointed time, volunteers arrived at the intersection, even not so ... MANY volunteers, who, at a traffic light signal, were crossing the road in an organized manner, setting an example including adults, and well reminding drivers of caution and increased attention on the city’s roads .

7. Guys with the help of a face painting put a combat color on the face on the topic of traffic regulations and were divided into several groups. The first group on the green signal of the traffic light crossed the road with posters warning drivers ...

8. The second group was holding the letters from the already popular Samara hashtag # SAMARABEZDTP

9. Well, the guys from the third group handed out reflective strips and stickers to pedestrians ...

ten.Despite the warning voice of the inspector constantly broadcasting from the loud horn, the flashing beacons on the patrol car and even the work of volunteers, the rams were still in the crowd and persistently fidgeted diagonally right in the middle of the road ...

11. Perhaps some of you will say that such events are useless and will probably be partly right, because it will not work to get rid of a flock of stupid little sheep at once, but the fact that at least the same volunteers will not break the rules at such crossroads is a big a business. And I sincerely believe that the young guys will share this invaluable experience with their peers, relatives and friends, etc.

12. Only such events can gradually form first of all polite people on the roads. Looking at the statistics of the accident and the number of victims (stupid victims) you wonder, and only one question turns in your head: What did they give you about 10-20-30 seconds? After all, life in any case was more expensive!

13. The event was attended by the deputy head of the UGIBDD of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Samara region police lieutenant colonel I. A. Bobrov

14. The casual uncle's passer-by asked a very strange question to the lieutenant colonel: “And why is there no pedestrian crossing, and people are crossing the road? It's a mess!”
Why does an adult ask such stupid questions, I could not understand))). Yet it is obvious that there are rules of the road that are absolutely the same for all road users (pedestrians, drivers) and which must be followed without fail! Easy as that!

15. To make it completely clear what this dangerous intersection looks like, made a screenshot from the summer google maps. So do not be lazy and once again remind your family and friends that on such sections, and indeed on the roads, you must be extremely careful and attentive!
