SHOES, NEW UNIFORM … NEW ROAD DRILL
children will switch from primary to secondary schools this
September (2007) – but the challenge facing parents should not be fitting
kids for new shoes, but kitting them out for the journey between
home and school, says the IAM Motoring Trust.
550 children and young people under 19 will lose their lives on the
road this year, and a change of school is a major danger point for
older age groups. In spite of high-profile reporting of violence
among children, those aged between 5 and 14 are five times more
likely to die in a road accident than be killed by criminal assault.
“Many children switching to junior or secondary schools will
have begged parents to let them start the new term walking or
cycling on their own.
Those starting 6th-form colleges may now be
using mopeds, motorcycles or cars. The change of journey, the
distractions of new friends and different after-school clubs all put
the lives of children at risk. Parents can help children by
using the last few days of the summer break to practise the route to
school together two or three times, without the interruptions of
friends. Help the child identify danger spots and pick safe crossing
points before the start of term, and they will be better equipped
when term begins.” says Neil Greig, director of the IAM
To help parents educate their children and establish safer road
drill before the start of term the IAM Motoring Trust has published
a safety guide which highlights dangers specific to different age
groups, starting at 0 to 4 year olds and working up to 16 to 19 year olds,
and advice on how to address them. The guide can be downloaded free
