Road safety packs for schools
Environment Minister Alex Attwood has launched a new road safety teaching resource for schools.
The resources comprise of two education packs produced for post-primary schools each of which contains a DVD, a worksheet and teacher's notes.
The packs will allow for the continued delivery of the road safety message by professional teaching staff.
The first pack is entitled Respect Everyone's Journey and is aimed at pupils aged 11-14.
Mr Attwood said: "Educating the public and influencing attitudes and behaviours towards road safety is vital and the first step to achieve this is to instil good road-user attitudes and behaviours in young people. What is learnt and put into practice at a young age forms the basis of behaviour in later life."
