Créches and Montessori schools across the region are today holding Beep Beep Day, an initiative by the Road Safety Authority (RSA) aimed at educating the most vulnerable road users on the importance of safety on the roads, whether they are out walking, cycling or passengers in cars or buses.
It’s part of Irish Road Safety Week, and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) is today having a Child Safety Day nationally.
RSA distributed 40,000 high visibility vests to pre-school services and providers in advance of Beep Beep Day. Children aged 5 and under will today practice basic road safety skills with the Simon and Friends road safety storybooks, songs, games and activities.
Meanwhile, StreetSmart is an initiative designed by the RSA for children of primary school age, and involves a streetscape mat which invites children to carry out typical, everyday cycling or pedestrian tasks and activities as directed by the RSA Road Safety Educators.
