Road safety

We work with schools, nurseries, colleges and local community groups and businesses to reduce road collisions and casualties, and raise awareness of road safety issues across the borough.

We support the Mayor of London’s commitment to reduce casualties on London’s roads and the goals as set out in his vision zero statement.

 

Road safety education and work with schools

We visit schools to help children learn about road safety. Children respond to lively, stimulating lessons and it’s our aim to make these sessions memorable for the children as well as providing them with advice that could help prevent them being injured on our roads.

Find out about our junior road safety officers (JRSOs), school crossing patrols and help for teachers. Road safety education and work with schools.
