Teaching children how to cross the road
Children are most at risk of being killed or seriously injured on the roads when they are on foot.
Good road safety behaviour can be learnt from a very early age. You can help by:
- Setting a good example
- Holding hands with your child as you cross the road
- Always finding the safest place to cross
- Stop, Look & Listen before crossing the road
- Take time to teach your child how to cross the road safely
‘‘Tales of the Road: A highway code for young road users’‘ is a great resource to start discussing road safety with your children.
