Antonov Alexandr Alexeevich

Senior lecturer at the Department of Special Disciplines at Far East Juridical Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation

The author considers the problem of road accidents, particularly those involving child injury cases, which are among the most frequent reasons of child mortality. The author demonstrates statistical data allowing to conclude on the effectiveness of the work of public authorities in this field. The author studies the rules of child transportation inside the vehicle and the problem of using special child retaining devices depending on the child’s age, and proposes the variants of solving this problem. The research is based on general scientific methods: generalization and deduction. As specific research methods, the author uses modeling and legal norms interpretation. The author concludes about the necessity to systematically change the attitude of citizens towards the issue of traffic safety. To achieve this goal, a new compulsory subject should be included in school curriculum, and the idea of personal responsibility for the lives of passengers should be ingrained in drivers’ minds.  

Keywords: road environment, traffic accident, vehicle, rules of safe behavior, special retaining device, child traffic injury rate, traffic safety, driver, passenger, traffic participant
