At the start of a new school year, the police traditionally make children aware of the dangers that can occur on the way to school.
The aim is to remind or teach the youngest children that pedestrians and cyclists are the most vulnerable users on the road.
In addition, a new school year also marks the beginning of autumn, with daytime becoming progressively shorter. That is why it is important to be visible in the dark.
The police have thus distributed more than 7,000 safety vests to pupils in cycle 2.1 of primary education. The police recommend that children wear high-visibility clothing in order to increase their visibility to motorists, especially in darker weather.
