Road Safety
It is safe to cross at a zebra crossing only when the traffic on both sides has stopped.

Road Safety

Road safety is knowing how to cross roads safely. Roads are very dangerous places and many people are killed on our roads each year. Learning some basic rules when crossing the road, such as Stop, Look and Listen, is extremely important and could even save your life.

There are so many distractions these days, such as personal music players, headphones and mobile phones; and yet these things can cause accidents. When you need to cross a road, make sure you are as aware as possible, not only looking but listening too. A cyclist is much quieter than a car, but can also cause considerable damage if they hit you.

This quiz tests your knowledge of road safety when walking, cycling and riding in a car.
