These booklets are the products of projects funded by the Department of the Environment (DOE), Road Safety & Vehicle Regulation Division (RS&VRD), through Community Transport Association (CTA), which administers the road safety grant on behalf of the Department. The booklets are aimed at primary school children with the intention of illustrating road safety issues. The first booklet from the 2012 project shows children how to travel to school safely using the various different methods available and the 2013 booklet gives little scenarios in which the children are asked to decide what the right decision is to get them to their destination safely..
Note to parents, guardians & teachers
As well as short storylines which young children can enjoy, the booklets contain more in depth safety regulations which parents, teachers and older children should read and discuss with the children. It would be beneficial to take time to explain and talk about some of the book concepts such as “lollipop person”; “booster seat”; “distractions”; “safety helmet” etc. and encourage open conversations about other aspects of safety.
