No washing machine, no telephone, no television, no game consoles – and, of course, we would suddenly be plunged into darkness if the light went out. Even a flashlight would not help because it works with electricity as well even though this electricity does not come from the socket but from a battery.

When you set out from home on your way to school, you become a road user – just like all other pedestrians, cyclists, cars, lorries or buses. And all road users must take care that no accidents happen on the roads or pavements. As a road user you must be attentive and, if possible, always keep an overview of where you are standing, going or driving – and of what other road users are doing or maybe planning to do. You have to be careful and always take into consideration that perhaps another traffic participant is not being attentive. Thus you can avoid accidents. And eventually you must show consideration for other people using the road or pavement.
