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. Danger from traffic is also a big factor in whether
children and young people are able to walk and cycle to school, to the
park or to see friends, and therefore affects their ability to be
healthy and socially active.
