Road Safety Awareness Raising Programmes Ages 5 to 15

Young children as well as teenagers often act on an impulse, when this happens when they walk the street, ride bicycle or play near traffic the results can be catastrophic. Early childhood development shows that children develop their cognitive, physical and conceptual understanding of location, environment, space, distance, side sight  and speed at different stages (and ages). Older children are easily distracted by peer pressure, over confidence and at times the wish to show-off. 


In order to minimize the dangerous of traffic and road related accidents among young children and youth groups, it is of high importance that they start learning at a young age to start identifying dangerous situations on the road, be able to read basic signs and signals and understand what they represent. While it is still imperative for adults to continue monitoring their child behavior when on the road, the training is complimentary to ensure their sensitization to risks, commence developing understanding and growing responsibility as pedestrians, passengers and bicycle riders.
