Bag Covers for Elementary School Students to Promote Safety


GURI, Jun. 26 (Korea Bizwire)The city of Guri in Gyeonggi Province said Tuesday that it has produced 520 bag covers for students and delivered them to first- and second-graders at three elementary schools.

Following a similar initiative at an elementary school on a trial basis last year in which parents and teachers responded positively, the city expanded the distribution of bag covers.

The bag cover is waterproof and marked with the number “30,” a nod to the speed limit of 30 kilometers per hour that must be observed within school zones.

Light reflective materials were also used to help drivers see the bag cover well at night.

A number of improvements were made to the bag cover that was supplied last year, with the addition of a name tag and connection ties to prevent loss.
