Childrens road safety

 

Make an enquiry:

Parents and carers should ensure that they and their children understand about road safety.

Parents or carers of children have a responsibility for the safety of their charges, including road safety.

Many leave it to teachers at their children’s schools to deal with road safety issues, though they should do this, it is not enough and as a parent or carer you should also teach your children about road safety.

During 2006 on average 5 children aged 0 to 3 years were killed or seriously injured on the UK's roads every week.

Approximately 27 children aged 4 to 11 were killed or seriously injured weekly during 2006.

Whilst youngsters aged 12 to 16 were the most at risk of being killed or seriously injured in car accidents, cycle accidents or pedestrian accidents

Parents or carers can reduce the risk to children on our roads by ensuring small children have the correctly fitted car seats on every car journey, or if on foot that children can be easily seen by road users.

Parents or carers should ensure that children understand the Green Cross Code as soon as they are able, and ensure they know how to cycle safely, ask at their school about cycling proficiency courses.

Children should never be allowed near roads alone whatever their age unless they understand about road safety whether cycling or on foot.

No one likes road accidents, but it is particularly upsetting when children are involved, especially when teaching them road safety may have prevented it.

So make sure your child learns road safety and stays road safe.

The government has produced information on Travelling to school available at www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/sustainable/schooltravel/travelling/. Kids can learn more about road safety whilst having fun by visiting www.hedgehogs.gov.uk.
