Motorists are urged to take care in and around school zones and obey the 40km/h speed limit restrictions on school days. Children are often difficult to see behind cars, on street corners and along footpaths. Drivers should expect the unexpected as children can be eas ily excited and might forget to check for traffic. It is also a time to remind children of good road safety habits. Using childrens crossings is the safest way to cross the road and planning safe travel routes to and from school will help keep children safe. When riding to school, children must always wear a helmet. Teach your children to get off their bikes and walk across crossings. This is a legal requirement and gives them time to stop, look for traffic and think before crossing the road. We all need to play our part to reduce the risks so children stay safe on our roads. Road safety is everyones responsibility. Check your speed and slow down.
