If many children have worn hats so far and have not caused that much harm, then it is a splendid commonwealth, or the wisdom of our predecessors, or one of the common good that society has accumulated. I think. On top of that, I think it would be good to arrange in each region. (46 likes)
29.4% “For traffic safety, wearing a yellow hat should be compulsory.” Wearing a yellow hat will make you stand out, so I think it’s good for traffic safety for small children who have just started school or children who are restless. (24 likes)
Depending on the traffic conditions in the school district, I think that the recommended degree of wearing or maintaining the same throughout the year will change. We believe that it has the effect of avoiding accidents due to visibility. However, there are strong concerns, and it is not possible to draw a conclusion that this is the case in all regions, so it is classified as other. I have two major concerns. I think the yellow hat could be the background for peer pressure. Secondly, I think that the risk of a serious accident increases by concentrating on the yellow hat when making a mistake. (45 likes)
