Anonymous:Is this a proper usage:
"This measure is aimed at protecting the safety of citizens and in particular children in the City..."
To my ear, you could avoid repeating it by switching to the adverb - the safety of citizens, particularly the children in the City....
I like "children" with the article, but think "citizens" is fine without it.
Best wishes, - A.
Anonymous:Thank You! That does sound better.
Anonymous:The safety of children in particular is addressed by the measure.
