Guidelines for Children

  • Always walk on the footpath only. On roads without footpath, walk on the extreme right hand side of the roads.
  • Do not be impatient on the road. Do not rush or run on the road.
  • Leave home well in time, so that you won't have to run to catch the bus.
  • At the bus stand, always follow the queue. Board the bus only after it has come to a halt, without rushing in or pushing others.
