Road safety is a great subject to engage children and young people with.
Even the youngest children know something about road safety because everyone uses roads, and road danger affects everyone. It’s also a vitally important subject.
Road crashes are a major cause of death and injury among the young, with the risk rising as children reach secondary school age and have more independence.
The danger from traffic is also a big factor in whether children and young people are able to safely walk and cycle to school, to the park or to see friends, and therefore, affects their ability to be healthy and socially active.
The road safety charity Brake has some great information and resources to support road safety education for young people.
