Safe on the Road by JRSO
Spring is coming! Because of this, you will probably be playing outside a lot more and it is important to remember how to be safe near the roads. Here are our top tips!
Our Top 3 Tips:-
Stop, look and listen
STOP: Find a safe place to cross then stop! Stand on the pavement near the kerb but if there is no kerb stand on the edge.
LOOK: Stand in a good place and give yourself lots of time to look around so you can see vehicles coming and drivers can see you.
LISTEN: Listen carefully - sometimes you can hear traffic before you see it. Never cross the road while chatting, listening to music or on a phone. When it is safe to cross, walk in a straight direction across the road looking and listening at all times.
BE BRIGHT, BE SEEN: Wear colourful or fluorescent clothing when out on a dark day. Add cool reflective zips and stickres to your backpack. Wear reflective clothes or accessories in the evening, so you can be seen by drivers.
FIND A SAFE PLACE TO CROSS: Always try to cross on pedestrian crossings and zebra crossings.
