This year, more than eight thousand signs “Caution, children!” Have been applied, which duplicate the road sign “Children” on the roadway, ”he said.
Such markings will warn drivers that in this area you need to be prepared for the sudden appearance of a child on the road, so you need to slow down and be extremely careful.
