This paper outlines the development of traffic education materials for primary and secondary schools in Botswana. These materials were developed under the sponsorship of the Botswana Road Safety Improvement Project, and consist of three booklets covering activities of children aged 7 to 14. The activities are to be integrated into various school curriculum subjects, including language, social studies, mathematics and science. A series of slides and a teacher's manual have been developed, to accompany these booklets and to help teachers to present traffic education. A videofilm has been prepared for children over 14, which aims to encourage them to train and help younger children to understand road traffic. Future plans include the integration of traffic education into the teacher training college curriculum, so that teachers can go into the community to support the efforts of district road safety committees. As the programme has limited resources and technical know-how, it needs support and assistance from people more experienced in road safety work. Paper presented at the Second ECA/OECD African Road Safety Congress, Addis Ababa, 16-20th October 1989.
