Attention parents and students-what should be on vacation
Of course, you should relax during the holidays - but for all school beginners or those who change schools, a lot will be new and some should be practiced in advance. From the police, this includes training on the way to school! If you have not already done so, you should start training in the remaining vacation days.
Even if your child is very independent, you will train with him several times on the way to school. The training should be linked to school hours. A weekend with little traffic can only serve as an introductory training session. This also applies to the use of public transport and the correct behavior at bus stops.
Talk to your children specifically about special features or danger spots along the way to school.
The police recommend: Children should first take the bicycle test during primary school and only then cycle to school.
If your child rides a bike to school, then you should regularly check that it is in perfect technical condition. Good equipment includes a bike helmet in the right size that can protect when worn correctly.
More security through visibility:
Send your children as easily recognizable as possible on their way to school. You can increase safety by adding reflective elements to the clothing or by using safety vests. This is a good investment for the coming dark season. Drivers can see pedestrians wearing reflective clothing around 150 meters earlier.
