We work to reduce road casualties within the borough through training, education and awareness initiatives. We work with everyone but focus on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, school children and the elderly.Below is a taster of the work we do. Click here to find out more.bike-safeFree training for motorcyclists, moped and scooter ridersWe have teamed up with Transport for London and BikeSafe - London to offer Rider Skills Days for motorcyclists, moped and scooter riders. If you live or work in the borough and would like to attend the course free of charge please contact us on 020 8547 5002 or at smartertravel@rbk.kingston.gov.uk.School crossing patrolsWe provide schools in the borough with a crossing patrol person - someone to help you and your children cross busy roads. Drivers who do not stop for the school crossing patrol stop sign may be fined £1,000 and gain three penalty points on their licence.Please contact us if your school would like a school crossing patrol. We will consider the area and may carry out a survey to establish the number of vehicles and the number of children crossing the road when the school opens and closes.We look for the best way to help pedestrians - for example, it may be more helpful to install traffic calming measures rather than a school crossing patrol.Road safety for childrenJunior road safety officers in schoolsEvery year, pupils in Year 6 of each junior and primary school across the borough can become junior road safety officers - helping to promote sustainable travel and road safety. Our scheme runs alongside Transport for London's Junior Road Safety Officer scheme. Chosen pupils help by distributing newsletters and posters, running assemblies and competitions, with our support.Junior citizensThe junior citizen scheme helps children in Year 6 move from primary school to secondary school. The scheme runs every January for two weeks. The road safety section looks at distractions, high visibility clothing and cycle safety. The scheme is supported by community agencies, the Metropolitan Police and fire and rescue service.ctcl-logo_200pxChildren's Traffic ClubThe Children's Traffic Club is a road safety education scheme run by Transport for London for three and four year olds.
