Traffic culture as part of general human culture is acquired in the period from early childhood to old age. In modern times, the trend of rapid life dictates the necessity of everyday participation in traffic in various roles as pedestrians or motorists. To be civilized and polite in traffic means to act in accordance with traffic rules and regulations, with mutual respect and consideration for other traffic participants, with special attention to the most vulnerable participants like: children, persons with disabilities, old persons and cyclists. All mentioned above implies the general conclusion that traffic culture represents reflection of the living in particular area.
LOW LEVEL OF TRAFFIC CULTURE PRODUCES THE HIGH NUMBER OF DEAD AND INJURED PEOPLE IN TRAFFIC! Therefore, we all must respect traffic rules and regulations in Montenegro in order to create safe and secure surrounding for Montenegrin citizens!
