Last month, a six-year-old boy was run over by a bus. He died. In April, an e-scooter hit an 11-year-old girl. She needed several stitches to her gums and suffered abrasions on her head, face, elbow and knees. On the same day, a six-year-old boy was also hit by an e-scooter.
These are not isolated cases. Children - who are sometimes restless on the roads and sometimes hidden from the view of drivers, given their small size - are at high risk of being involved in traffic accidents.
