In the current school year, 1,000 students in 5th grade, from most of Cartagena's schools, participate in the Municipal Road Education Program organized by the City Council of Cartagena, with the collaboration of the Local Police, to acquire a larger awareness of traffic regulations, both in the role of pedestrians and drivers.
This Thursday, the students of CEIP Cuatro Santos have completed the program, while on Friday the Patronage College of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will attend.
As a novelty, the Councilor for Public Safety, Juan Pedro Torralba, has announced that "the program has included the new regulations for electric scooters, which entered into force last December."
The DGT's instruction on scooters includes penalties for driving with headphones or using the mobile phone, without reflective clothing or lighting when traveling at night.
In addition, these drivers may be tested for drugs and alcohol.
It is also important to remember that this type of vehicle is only authorized for the transport of a single person.
If the person commits the infraction, the parents or guardians will be jointly and severally liable for the infraction committed by the minor.
During the training, given in the Road Education Park by the Local Police of Cartagena, a theoretical class is first offered through the popular trivial game adapted to safety standards, for later students to tour the circuit, well walking, either on skate or bicycle, with the aim of respecting traffic signs and starting up the knowledge acquired.
