ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION IN THE UK AT THE END OF THE 20TH CENTURY

This comprehensive review, carried out between 1996 and 1999, included surveys of road safety education (RSE) programmes in schools, and the associated activities of Road Safety Officers, Police Forces, and Health Promotion Units. There is much good practice in RSE across the UK, and examples are documented. Recommendations are made on how to support this, and encourage its transfer to areas where it is missing. A need is seen to emphasise, within local authority plans, any childafetys entitlement to a developmental RSE programme. Other concerns raised by interviewees included pressures on teacherafetys time from other curriculum requirements, lack of resources in some agencies, and the need to place road safety within the wider context of health and environmental quality.
