Road deaths are the biggest ‘accidental’ cause of death of children and young people. All kids and young people use roads and have experienced road danger; so it's the perfect topic for a project that can really engage them as well as save their lives, while also meeting curriculum goals. Road Safety Week is the ideal time to do it!
So help stop the carnage by joining thousands of educators signing up to run a road safety project in their institutions in Road Safety Week, and we'll stay in touch with you along the way, helping you to run a great event.
To get your online action pack of tips, ideas and downloadable resources to use during the Week, register today!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Talk about road safety in your assemblies.
- Hold a special road safety assembly or open event for parents.
- Run a Beep Beep! Day for under-eights.
