Road and Car Safety

Importance of road safety

Whether you're a pedestrian, cyclist, passenger or diver, with more people than ever on the roads, it's important we all have a sense of awareness.

It's a great idea to get kids engaged with road safety from a young age.  The last few decades have proved that effective and comprehensive road safety strategies can reduce the number of people killed or injured on the road, despite increasing traffic.

A survey from RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) found that less than half of parents of primary school aged children said they'd received any road safety education training within the last 12 months in school. This means that parents play a significant role in educating their children about road safety.
