    Be aware of the danger

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Fire jugglers on the streets of Buenos Aires? As Argentine student Mariana1983 explained, the spectacle is part of a campaign she and some friends have created in the city encouraging people to get out of the bad habit of waiting in the road for buses. "People usually wait in the road and not on the sidewalk because they are in a hurry ... or perhaps because they don't see it as risky," she said. "We want to change that." They decided to use fire jugglers to show people they were playing with fire -- and their lives -- by standing in the road. She said she is part of a team of five people and the campaign was for a class assignment.
    - sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer

    A group of young students walked around Buenos Aires bus stops with a fire juggler to get people´s attention and warn them about the danger of waiting the bus on the road in stead of the sidewalk.
    Many accidents happens beacuse of this oversight and because people thinks that there are other things more risky than that, like playing with fire.
    What they did is to ask people if they think that what the juggler was doing was risky and what they feel about waiting the bus on the streeet.
    People reacted in a good way and the young students of the Buenos Aires University share out flyers with statistics about accidents with walkers involve.
