At the start of each school year, from September to October, ŠKODA joins forces with its dealers in Russia to run ŠKODA Krokha, a nationwide road-safety project for children aged 7 to 10 years. Launched in 2011, the initiative includes information events presented in entertaining ways, plus an additional online element to teach children about the Highway Code and safe road behavior. In 2018, around 2 130 children from 11 cities in Russia attended road-safety classes and learned about correct behavior in road situations as part of the project. Next tournament is planned to be realized in April 2019.
