The project, with which OKKO filling stations network draws attention of drivers and passengers to the need for seat belts constant use, continues its realization in the cities of Ukraine. The real size car seat, made of 1,079 stubs for seat belts, which conscious drivers brought to filling stations throughout Ukraine, is now being installed at Ministry of Internal Affairs service center in Lviv.

"Four years ago, our company launched a national project "I pay, live! Road safety"*. This year, we have focused drivers’ and passengers’ attention on the need to use seat belts and baby car seats. One of the activities of the current year's program, "I pay, fasten" was an all-Ukrainian promo to collect stubs. Initially, we planned to dispose the stubs collected; later it became clear that the creation of such an art object would make think the other drivers who still use them. We thank the service centers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the public organization "All-Ukrainian Association of Driving Schools" for supporting the idea," said Daryna Yanchenko, OKKO Head of Section of Corporate Communications Department, during press-briefing.

The unusual sculpture will be exposed for visitors of Lviv territorial service center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for one month (D. Apostol Str. 10). After that the art object from OKKO filling complexes network will travel to other cities of the country to remind drivers of the need to permanently use the security belt.

"It's nice that private business supports social projects and organizes socially important events. Because MIA service centers issue driver's licenses, we feel responsible for driver’s safety. It is also important for us to constantly attract the attention of our clients and visitors to traffic rules and culture of behavior", - said Alexander Plashovetsky, Head of Lviv Regional Service Center of MIA, at a briefing.

Besides the campaign of collecting stubs the 6-months project "I pray, fasten",  included trainings in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Ivano-Frankivsk, Khmelnytsky and Krivyi Rig for about 1000 young parents - the clients of the network, educational workers, police and medicine staff.  A series of educational videos about the children's car seats use was also launched. In total, the project reached over 3.5 million Ukrainians.
