ROAD WISE

DURATION:  30 mins

OUTCOME:  Increase awareness of the dangers of traffic and how we can be more Road Wise.

RATIONALE:  It is a sad fact that each and every day, too many children fall victim to road accidents and traffic mishaps. Teaching children to have a healthy awareness for roads and traffic safety can avert these daily tragedies. Cars reversing and hitting children because they cannot be seen happens all too often, as do children running into the street without thinking when chasing a friend or a ball. Vigilance and awareness are the keys to keeping children as safe as possible on or near roads and carparks.

KEY MESSAGES:  

• Traffic can be deadly – Kids are small and sometimes drivers might not see you.

• In a parking lot or driveway, never stand behind a car – The driver might not see you when reversing or backing out.

• Never ever run into the road to catch a ball or chase your friend.

• Only cross a road at the lights or crossing point and even then still look left and right and left again to check it is safe before crossing.

• Seatbelts save lives – Always wear yours.
