Despite the perimeter closures due to the pandemic, Easter significantly increases traffic and vehicle movements, so it is necessary to have extreme caution on the roads to avoid accidents.
Health specialists say that immediate medical assistance is essential for recovery in the event of an incident. Injuries from traffic accidents have become the problem of road safety. After a collision, the most frequent injuries are those of the spine, especially whiplash, due to the sudden forward and backward movement that occurs in the head when there is a sudden impact.
