Road Safety Summer Challenge

by Jonathan Kearney

Knowsley children have been set a summer challenge to learn more about road safety.

More children are killed or seriously injured in road traffic collisions than any other accidental cause.

During the summer holidays children are encouraged to go out with an adult to take photos at different locations and consider what the potential hazards are at each and what they should do to stay safe.

Completed entries to the challenge received by Friday 4 September 2020 will go into a prize draw.

Photos should be taken from the child’s view point, so the picture demonstrates the road as they see it.

Cllr Tony Brennan, Knowsley Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said:
“If you bend down to your child’s eye level next to a parked car you will realise that you can only see the car and not a clear view of the road. Getting out with you to discuss these issues will make it much easier for your child to understand. Ask them what the challenge is at each location and what they should do to stay safe. Try and get them to tell you rather than you tell them!”

You can find an entry template for the Road Safety Summer Challenge here.

Email your child’s work to us at roadsafety@knowsley.gov.uk making sure that you tell us your name and school.
