It’s vitally important that children and young people stay safe when out walking or cycling.

A survey commissioned by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) of parents of primary school pupils found that less than half had received any road safety education training, meaning that in many cases, road safety education becomes the responsibility of parents.

Road safety is best taught in a practical setting meaning that parents are ideally placed when walking their children to school to discuss road safety topics such as safe and dangerous places to cross the road.

Children often mimic the behaviour of their parents and carers, so it is vital to be consistent and put into practice safe crossing techniques.ROSPA has produced a 14-page information resource – Teaching Road Safety: A Guide for parents.
