"Violation of the order of passage of intersections, rules of passage of pedestrian crossings and speeding are becoming the most common cause of accidents involving children," the website kp.ru quotes Ponaryin.

According to him, the statistics of injuries and deaths of children in car accidents are increasing in the country due to violations of traffic rules by drivers carrying children.

Earlier, the head of the traffic police Mikhail Chernikov announced a decrease in the number of fatal accidents in 2020.
