The Cehegín City Council, through the Department of Citizen Security and Education, led by Jerónimo Moya and Mónica Sánchez, has begun the work of adapting the pedestrian crossings, near educational centers, so that children with autism spectrum disorder ( TEA) can cross safely.This will be possible thanks to the incorporation of four pictograms (stop, look, car stopped and cross) in these pedestrian crossings.
This work is coordinated from the Local Police by the Guardian Police of Cehegín, Gabriel Martínez."Through these pictograms, it has been explained from the consistory, it is intended to help children with autism spectrum disorder to gain autonomy, making their movement on the street safer.""We will analyze, they have specified, the effectiveness of this type of road marking, since these steps with pictograms are only the beginning of a project and our intention, if the answer is favorable, is to extend it to more areas of the municipality where they can be useful" .
