Parents should involve their kids in driving

RoadSafe is encouraging parents to ask their children to assess their driving, to encourage them to become interested in road safety at an early age.

RoadSafe believes that while children are old enough to drive, the sooner they become interested in safe driving the better. It suggests that making a game of it by asking children to co-pilot or guess what road signs mean will keep them occupied and pass on experience without it feeling like a chore.

Getting child passengers to pick up any mistakes will also make parents aware of any bad habits they may have developed.

RoadSafe says that children pick up driving characteristics from their parents at an early age. This means that once they start to drive they may fall into bad or dangerous habits learnt from parents.
