The idea that Councils can provide road safety education for children is becomming an anomaly as, although funding is provided by the DfT it now appears that there is now little money left for the delivery of road safety education.
But what can Councils deliver?
Is there a nationwide project?
Are we making the best use of the students ideas?
There is now an initiative, supported by the DfT and RoSPA that provides 11 - 18 year olds with the opportunity to enter, firstly, an area competition based on BBC local Radio stations and then the winners go forward to the Final.
The students are required to carry out research and develop a project which is suitable for their age and area.
The winners entries will then be submited to the DfT as potential road safety campaigns.
Further details can be found at studentroadsafetyawards.co.uk
Feed back is welcomed as are participants.
This is free to both students and road safety units.
