By the time they reach secondary school, many young people are starting to flex their wings and look for any opportunity to be a little more independent.
This might mean that they want to get themselves to and from school, or head out with their friends on their own during the holidays.
And, as they progress through their secondary education, they’ll start to think about learning to ride a scooter or get their driving licence.
While they’re at school, the young people will get access to a range of road safety initiatives – perhaps including journey planning sessions, Theatre in Education or cycle training. Make sure that you also have a look at what your local County Council offers by checking out their road safety pages.
