Parents are the most important role models in young pedestrian safety

Getting young road users to think about safety can be a challenge. So how can you begin to teach your child how to act safely near roads?

Kent Road Safety have developed and work with a number of programmes that help to establish safer road behaviours amongst our younger road users.

Our programmes take place in schools across Kent and focus on children being safer road users.

Our programmes for children include:

Kent Road Safety Club

The Kent Road Safety Club aims to positively effect children’s pedestrian and cyclist behaviour, subsequently and significantly reducing child and teenage pedestrian casualties in Kent.
