Hello everybody!

It is absolutely necessary to wear a helmet while walking through or staying in danger zone No.1 or 2.

Do you think the sentence is properly expressed, especially while walking through (danger zone No.1 or 2) or staying in danger zone No.1 or 2?

Thank you.

"Staying in" sounds like people are living in the danger zones. I favor more direct language:

You are required to wear a helmet at all times when you are in danger zones 1 or 2.
