The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has asked drivers to take extra care when making their daily commute or school run, in light of International Walk to School Month.
International Walk to School Month encourages millions of children around the world to walk to school for various reasons, including the promotion of road safety.
Neil Greig, IAM director of policy and research, said: “Hopefully more children and parents will be out and about in response to International Walk to School Month, but this means drivers need to take extra care.
“Any initiative that gets children out of the car and walking is good for their health, the environment, and for decreasing congestion, but it has to be done safely.”
