Take Notice- Keeping children safe on the roads

Barnet has joined forces with The London Road Safety Council to launch a road safety campaign aimed at Year 6 children and their parents/carers and teachers. As we come out of lockdown, the roads are busier, children are not used to increased traffic and may have forgotten the Green Cross Code. They may be travelling to secondary school along new routes with friends, or on their own. The danger of children being involved in road traffic accidents may increase at this time.

Lets all help to keep our children safe!
