Road safety tips

Staying safe on the road is very important since keeping our children safe is a top priority.

Here are some tips that you should always keep in mind:

  • Hold their hand when crossing the road. This helps keep them safe, and you can guide them to cross the road safely.
  • Teach them to always look both ways before crossing the street. For older kids who can cross the road on their own, make sure that they always look both sides to see any oncoming traffic before they cross the street.
  • Make sure that they walk on sidewalks; well away from any traffic. Always walk on sidewalks, and never on the road.
  • Teach them basic traffic signs, and to follow road signs, such as those for crossing. It's important for everyone to know, respect, and understand basic traffic signs and follow them.
  • If they're biking on the road, make sure they always wear helmets and safety gear. Biking is a fun activity, but it can also be dangerous if you don't follow the necessary safety tips. Always make sure your children are wearing their helmets and safety gear at all times.
