Parents and children

Making sure your children are safe out and about is very important.

As a parent, you are role modelling road safety walking, crossing the road, cycling or driving, and it is how your children will learn how to behave. Take into account that young children will not see the roads as you see them, due to their height, visual development and ability to perceive hazards, even as teenagers.
