Road safety

Children and young people are amongst our most vulnerable road users. As a parent, guardian or carer we need to give them every opportunity to make informed choices to prepare them for potential dangers they may encounter in and around our roads.

The learning process starts from a very early age, so it is important we all take on the responsibility of keeping them safe. We should not rely on others to teach then 'road safety'. What we do and show them will be stored away in their knowledge bank and hopefully be used at the appropriate time in the future.

To check your knowledge on safety issues please also see the Parents' Safety Check.
