Hackney pupils interview road safety heroes

Hackney Council’s road safety team has joined forces with a primary school in the borough to interview four people they consider everyday road safety heroes.

The project, carried out with junior road safety officers from Mandeville Primary School, has been timed to coincide with Road Safety Week (15-21 Nov).

Using the theme ‘road safety heroes’, Road Safety Week 2021 pays tribute to the ‘heroic work’ of road safety campaigners, professionals, individuals and organisations across the country.

The four interviews feature a traffic officer from the Met Police, a member of the London Ambulance Service, a school crossing patrol officer and the founder of Pedal Power, a cycling club for children and adults with learning disabilities.

In each video, the participant explains their role, before offering road safety advice to the children.

They will be shared with all schools in the borough. 

Max Moorcock, road safety officer at Hackney Council, said: “We hope that the videos will show the range of people working every day to help keep the roads safer.”
