Children aren’t fully aware of the dangers of driveways, cars, roads, and car parks and it’s essential that we, as parents, teach them road safety from a young age.

Whether it’s crossing a pedestrian crossing at school or walking through a parking lot – the sooner children learn how to navigate roads safely the better. Children learn by experience, and road safety skills are best learned through real-life circumstances, under the supervision and guidance of parents and teachers.

Equipping children with the knowledge and understanding of how the road works is an essential life skill.


5 Road safety tips

We’ve put together some handy road wise tips:

  1. Know the signs and signals: Ensure you know what the various road signs and lights mean. Test your knowledge on the drive or walk home from school.
  2. Stop, look and cross: Stop and then look left and right to make sure that there are no oncoming vehicles before crossing.
  3. Zebra crossings: The only place you should cross the road is at a pedestrian crossing. Make this a habit!
  4. Slow it down: Don’t run, always walk where there is traffic to ensure your safety.
  5. Watch out: When walking in car parks, be extra careful, drivers might not see you. Always be on the lookout for reversing lights and moving vehicles.
