Collision data is used to identify age groups, road users and locations where road safety education programmes could help to reduce the number of people killed or injured on the road. A wide range of educational resources have been produced, each tailored to a specific age group or road user (for example pedestrians or passengers).
LRSU believes that road safety education must begin at an early age and be supported by parents, teachers and the wider community. Partnership working is key to the effectiveness of education and LRSU work with road safety, health and emergency services, and education professionals.
LRSU educational resources are available in a variety of formats
including film, interactive activities, online programmes, printed materials, theatre in education performances, workshops for children, teachers, parents and professionals.
Resources also vary in their delivery methods. Some are teacher lead, others involve pupil lead classroom debate, online learning or parental guidance.
Training is also provided to road safety, health and education professionals involved in delivering road safety resources.
