Swiss kids are expected to be able to get back and forth to school on  
their own (including using transit) from about 7.  Younger than that,  
they wear special reflective vest things and tend to be accompanied  
if they're commuting, but at that age they're old enough to get to  
where they need to be in normal clothes just like everyone else.
