Road Safety Education
We offer many initiatives and resources targeted at children and young people, aiming to teach the skills required to become safe and independent travellers. These include:
'School Keep Clear' zig zag banner campaign
Many schools have a particular problem with parents parking on the ‘School Keep Clear’ zig zag lines during dropping off and picking up times. To encourage drivers to park more considerately we offer a loan of a zig zag banner, together with a leaflet for parents who drive their children to school, to help explain the dangers of obstructing school entrances.
Pre-school children: Children’s Traffic Club London
Children's Traffic Club London has been specifically developed by TfL to educate pre-school children, their parents and carers in basic road safety skills, making them safer road users of the future. It uses the latest digital technology to deliver the programme on PCs and hand held devices, while retaining an element of the more traditional printed books often used with this age group.
Youth Travel Ambassadors (YTA)
YTA is a student-led project for secondary school age students to encourage active travel, responsible travel and road safety in the school community. Projects can include anything from films and workshops to walking and cycling challenges.
Safe Drive Stay Alive
Safe Drive Stay Alive is a live event aimed at young people aged between 16 and 18 years, who may be new drivers, about to learn to drive or passengers in cars driven by their peers. With powerful, personal testimonies the presentation is designed to make the audience aware of the tragedy and suffering a road traffic crash can cause.
It takes place in partnership with London local authorities, London Ambulance NHS Trust, London Fire Brigade, the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London.
