quote of the day
Conventionally, traffic safety education has been irrelevant to the perspectives of children. We learned that stop signs won’t enter the field of vision of children whose line of sight is low, and that they don’t recognize the meaning of ‘stop’ written on the road. I think it would be effective if we could put up stop signs using characters that attract their attention … at least on routes where they go to and from school.
