Take every opportunity to teach children about road and vehicle safety;
Kidsafe SA, with the support of SGIC, has developed a new safety resource titled ‘Keeping children safe when out and about’.
From 2009 – 2013, 59 children aged 0-15 were seriously or fatally injured as pedestrians on South Australian roads.
This road safety resource has been designed in a low-literacy and easy-to-read format to convey clear and concise road safety messages and recommendations. It aims to raise awareness and empower parents and carers with the information and strategies to prevent pedestrian and passenger incidents.
We encourage you to download, print and distribute our new driveway safety resource by clicking on the picture to the left. Alternatively, you can call our office to order hardcopies of the resource to distribute and display at your local community/health/childcare centre.
Your support in this campaign will help to spread vital road safety messages to parents, carers and the wider community.
Kidsafe Australia with the support of NRMA Insurance and SGIO have developed the ‘Make Passenger Safety a Priority’ animation to reduce the risk of injury to children whilst travelling in your car this Holiday Season. In Australia, transport related injuries are the leading cause of death and the second most common cause of hospitalisation for children aged zero to 14 years. Fortunately there are simple things you can do to make it safer for your children whilst travelling on the road.
