Topic: Road Safety
This toolkit aims to support and assist education staff, partner agencies and CYP practitioners in their work with children, young people and families. Further information, advice and resources specific to road safety can be accessed via the additional resources button on this page.
As traffic is the single biggest killer of 12-16 year olds and around 1 in 4 road deaths involve drivers aged 17 -24, it goes without saying that Road Safety awareness is a significantly important aspect of safety education for children and young people of all ages.
Hampshire Constabulary is part of the Hampshire Road Safety Partnership who work together to support education and initiatives to raise awareness of safety issues to help children and young people develop skills to use roads safely, confidently and responsibly. Other partners include:
- Hampshire County Council
- Southampton City Council
- Portsmouth City Council
- Highways England
- Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service
