Tips to keep your child safe

  • Hold hands with your child when crossing the road until they are at least 10 years old
  • Children need to be actively supervised in and around traffic.
  • If your hands are full, make sure your child holds onto a trolley or pram, your bag, or even your arm or sleeve.
  • Set a good example
  • Children are always watching – they want to be grown up and be just like older children and adults. Make sure you always set a good example for your child around traffic. Talk with children about traffic and road safety
  • As you are walking, talk with your child about why you are stopping, and what you are looking and listening for. Explain to your child where it is safer to cross the road and why.
