Road Safety Teaching Resources

Teaching children to stay safe around roads


At UK Safety Store, road safety is something we are passionate about. Becoming savvy when it comes to road safety is easiest when education begins at an early age but with more and more families getting around by car, children are encountering fewer opportunities to familiarise themselves with life as a pedestrian and to explore the risks of the road in a safe and supervised way. While there may be no substitute for practical, everyday experience, road safety theory is still a valuable and perhaps even more important aspect of education. That’s why we’ve put together the largest collection of free road safety resources we could muster. Below you’ll find links to videos, games, worksheets, lesson plans and much more to help teachers and parents educate children about the importance of understanding road safety.
