Achieving safer school travel in the UK.
Presented at: An international symposium about ‘School Zone Safety’ convened by the Korean Association for Safe Community, Seoul.
This paper summarises the current UK approach to improving child road safety, focusing particularly on measures to enhance the safety of the school journey. It highlights the importance of a safe road environment, and a number of different ways in which this can be achieved, including engineering measures, often introduced via partnership work between local authorities, schools, the police, the local community, parents and children. It also reports on supporting measures, such as on-road child pedestrian and cycle training, which are becoming an increasingly common part of school activity.
