Road safety of child

Last update date August 15, 2019

Preface

Children
It is very fun to see figure that child grows up every day.
When field of activities spreads out with growth, child leaves outside from house. It is very dangerous on this occasion when we do not acquire custom to follow traffic rules. It is the first step to contact with society to follow traffic rules. When we follow traffic rules and do not act, we cannot walk road in peace.
We introduce point to want you to know protectors being to protect child from traffic accident here.

Characteristic point of child

1 is of narrow outlook on life, and viewpoint is low

As for the infant (6 years old child), only as for about 70 degrees, infant has about 90 degrees, vertical field of vision for adult about 120 degrees for adult about 150 degrees horizontal field of vision. In addition, even thing which adult looks like is not seen from infant as height is low.

When attention is suitable for thing of one 2, thing of the circumference does not get into eyes

As we may run suddenly when infant is in the other side of road, it will prevent you from certainly calling out.

Action changes by 3 occasional feelings

Let's leave that we scold before going out and rush. Feeling is upset, and action becomes impulsive.

We cannot understand words that 4 is vague well

"Dangerous" is insufficient only by persuading by words "that we be careful" about. It is important we repeat concretely, and to tell why it is dangerous what is dangerous in real scene.

We tend to play in 5 shelters

Child loves to be idle in shadow of pretty good appearance and car. Let's warn a roar if we see a car playing behind the scenes.

We are apt to imitate 6 adults

Child imitates adult. At first, adult follows traffic rules, of child let's make a model of.

We are apt to understand 7 things simply

We are apt to think that car stops at any time anytime only if we raise hand.
When signal becomes blue, we tend to start running in at full speed.

8 protection, supervision well

As ability necessary for road safety is undeveloped as for the child of infant and elementary school 1.2 years student degree, we cannot expect judgment that is right in various traffic scenes, safe action. It will prevent you from certainly taking your eyes off child on road.
In addition, adult will walk the road side while clenching hand of child well when we walk road.

(memo)
Traffic accident of infant has most "during car ride" followed by it is during "walk" and occupies most of with these two. In addition, things by "jumping out" increase for accident cause during "walk" most.
Traffic accident of primary schoolchild has most "during bicycle ride" followed by it is during "walk" and occupies most of with these two. In addition, there are the most things by "safe driving breach of duty" for accident cause during "bicycle ride", and things by "jumping out" increase for accident cause during "walk" most.

Point of traffic rules to tell child

How to walk road

We walk the sidewalk on road with 1 sidewalk.
On road without 2 sidewalk, we walk the right-side end of road.

The way of crossing of road

In the case of crossing with signal


Crossing 1
Crossing with signal

If 1 signal becomes "blue", we give hand and see the right and see the left and look to the right once again and cross after confirming that car does not come.

There may be car crossing and is dangerous when we jump out immediately because it became blue.

When 2 "blue" signal flashes on and off, we wait until it becomes the following "blue". When we are crossing, and "blue" signal began blinking, it passes by quick steps. We may fall down when we run in a hurry and are dangerous.

We are in danger of being involved in car turning left when we stand in the edge of sidewalk when we wait for crossing at 3 intersections. It falls one step and will wait.

When we cross road without signal

Crossing 2
Crossing without signal
We achieve one move and look at the right and see the left and look to the right once again and cross after confirming that car does not come.
Let's tell that we cross crossing even if some roads with many cars are far. Jaywalking of road is dangerous.
Car running behind parking and stopping vehicle is not seen in crossing road from between car stopping by car and traffic jam parking 2. In addition, it is very dangerous as we cannot see walker from car either.

Prohibited acts on road

As skateboarding on frequent road of traffic and run of roller shoes might lead to traffic accident, let's stop.
[reference] You must not do act does ball game in the frequent road of traffic, and does roller-skating or to be similar to these.
Fine (Road Traffic Act Article 76 Paragraph 4 No. 3) penal regulations ... 50,000 yen or less

Riding person of bicycle


When 1 bicycle runs on road, at the left edge of road, we pass the rotation road on road with the rotation road.
We can pass the sidewalk with 2 gore areas and bicycle sidewalk traffic possible mark. (when children under 13 and elderly people 70 years or older drive, the sidewalk traffic is possible.)
Crossing of 3 roads crosses there by all means if there are any bicycle crossing zones. We push bicycle in crossing and pass.
4 is intersection with mark of "stop" and temporarily stops by all means and crosses after confirming security of right and left. Please follow the traffic light at intersection with signal. Please be careful to temporarily stop by all means when we appear from small way to street.
As bicycle needs power to begin to row, rider avoids that we stop each time, but bicycle is obvious vehicle. It is dangerous to get on for sense similar to walker.
We part with 5 for two people, and dangerous driving including driving will be careful not to do.
We turn on light in 6 night and will put night airglow reflector.
