School Transport Safety Week 2021
This year's safety week begins on Monday 20 September. The safety week has been running for more than 25 years and gives individuals, road safety professionals, passenger transport operators, schools and parents an opportunity to raise awareness about the safety of children travelling by road. Keeping children safe when they travel by road starts with them learning to avoid distracting the driver of the car, bus, minibus or coach they are travelling in, keeping noise levels down and by wearing a safety belt if one is provided. These simple procedures can make all the difference between arriving safely to their destination or becoming a statistic if things go wrong. It is worth bearing in mind that around 20% of injuries are permanent.
If you want to promote safe travel, then the safety week offers the opportunity to run your own campaign for the full week or for just one day during the week. If you need assistance or ideas to do this please get in touch. We are here to help!
