Road safety

We had a very important talk today about road safety. We learned that we have a huge role to play in our own road safety. We went through the importance of looking both ways when crossing the road but also to have patience when crossing the road. One fact that surprised us was at traffic lights cars tend to speed up rather than get stuck at a red light so we need to be extra careful even when we have the green man telling us we can go. We also spoke about the importance of seatbelts in the car and if we see someone in the car without one we should tell them to put it on. Not ask tell ! Helmets when cycling was another big topic. We were supposed to see how many people don’t wear a helmet. We were told no matter where you are cycling you should wear a helmet that fits properly. We even simulated a car accident. The term human missile was used !
