Road Safety Wales resurrects road safety calendar
A road safety calendar designed mainly for use in schools has been produced by Road Safety Wales.
The calendar, which covers the academic year 2017-18, has been reintroduced after a gap of several years, at the request of several local authorities across Wales.
Pat Bates, road safety strategy officer at Torfaen County Borough Council, said: “I think the road safety calendar is a great idea. We send the printed academic year calendar to every primary school in the borough, as well as our own councillors as many are also school governors, and to local politicians and other key partners including some in the health sector.
“We follow this up each month with a PDF of the month in question, each of which has its own theme, to deliver a monthly road safety prompt to all those who received the printed calendar - and to a wider audience.
“In the covering email we stress that road safety themes for children include walking and cycling, so the calendar also supports the active travel and health and wellbeing initiatives that are so topical these days.
“We find this simple initiative engenders a lot of goodwill towards road safety for little financial outlay.
“Although the calendar is geared towards children, we all know that road safety is the responsibility of every road user, whether pedestrian, cyclist, motorist or any of the other modes of transport."
