Inspectors of the territorial military automobile inspection of the Central Military District, stationed in the Kemerovo region, congratulated the elderly residents of the region on the International Day of the elderly and held an action aimed at improving the safety of elderly pedestrians on the roads.

The action was held at the busiest pedestrian crossings in large settlements of the Kemerovo region. Military traffic inspectors, together with the traffic police, wished the participants of the action good health, family well-being and reminded what to look for when crossing the carriageways.

In addition, the elderly road users were reminded of the need to use reflective elements on their clothes and were presented with reflective stickers, without which, as many pensioners have promised, not a single walk down the street at night will do.
