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.
