Young Children & Road Safety

Choose safe places to cross

  • Clear view of traffic both ways.
  • Enough gaps in the traffic.
  • Choose the shortest path across the road.
  • Don’t walk out from between cars.
  • Use pedestrian refuges (teach the children which way to look for traffic).
  • Use school/pedestrian crossings/ traffic lights where possible.

Stop, Look, Listen, Think

  • STOP one step back from the kerb or shoulder of the road if there is no footpath.
  • LOOK in all directions for approaching traffic.
  • LISTEN in all directions for approaching traffic.
  • THINK about whether it is safe to cross the road – when the road is clear or all traffic has stopped.
  • When crossing, walk straight across the road.
  • Keep LOOKING and LISTENING for traffic while crossing.
