Introductory notes

As young people begin to mature and become more independent, they are exposed to increasing risks. Teenagers are an important group of road users as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and newly-qualified drivers. Many are unaware that road incidents are the biggest cause of accidental deaths and serious injuries amongst young people.

There is a need for all those involved with young people to help teach clear road safety messages to equip them to understand and manage the risks they encounter as road users.

This web site contains teacher resources and classroom activities covering the transition from primary to secondary school as well as activities for Key Stage 3 and 4 students. There is also an area with useful information for parents.
