The Government’s THINK! road safety campaign promotes road safety learning amongst children and young people via its online educational resource programme. THINK! have a suite of downloadable materials - tailored by age group - available to teachers, parents and road safety professionals to help them deliver road safety education to pupils.

Included in these resources is practical information and advice for how children can stay safe on our roads during the winter months when the nights are longer.

THINK! is in the process of reviewing the child and teen resource to ensure that the materials are consistent with modern educational approaches.
