Medway’s road safety team is attending a series of events across the region to teach pupils and students the rules of the road.
The team was at Mid Kent College’s recent freshers’ week to discuss drink-drive issues, demonstrate new roadside moped enforcement and provide a range of resources such as crash cards, biker safety packs and hi-visibility hats to more than 130 young people.
The team also visited Infant and Junior Schools in Cuxton to answer parents’ road safety questions and listen to their views and concerns.
James Sutton, Medways’ safer journeys officer, said: “It was positive to see so many parents consciously leave their cars at home and walk. There was lots of interest in setting up a walking bus or park and stride scheme. We are optimistic we can support these schemes to get people walking and reducing the number of cars outside the school gates.”
