Desperately seeking safety: Safe Routes to School: from courtship to marriage

The Safe Routes to School program has been an integral part of the South Australia Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI's) commitment to road safety in primary schools for the past 10 years. Safe Routes to School aims to improve the road safety of children travelling in their local area. The program involves a collaborative approach between our department, local councils, primary schools and their teachers, parents and students. All members have clearly defined roles and expectations. The council and DTEI provide the engineering support - that is, the physical improvements such as footpath and crossing upgrades that may be required on public footpaths surrounding the school. The responsibility of the school is to teach road safety with resources and support provided by DTEI. Schools are invited to participate in the program in cluster groups and it is a local decision if they decide to join or not - road safety education is not a compulsory part of the curriculum in South Australia.
