Safety 1st‎ > ‎

Parents & Teachers


Many people are unaware that the number of fatalities amongst young people caused by road accidents is higher than deaths from other external causes, including those that receive much more publicity from the media. In 2008, 73 children aged 0 - 11 years were killed on Britain's roads. Another 1,436 were seriously injured. There is a need for all those involved with children to teach clear road safety messages effectively and consistently, working together to help children understand and manage risk.

THINK! Education is the Department for Transport's suite of road safety resources for teachers, parents and pupils, including:

guidance on planning and delivering effective road safety education
teaching ideas
