How can I prevent my children from injuries when crossing the road?
When crossing the road, young children should be taught to:
- stop at the side of the road
- look both ways
- listen for cars or other vehicles before crossing
- hold the hand of another person
- walk, not run
- in urban areas, use pedestrian crossings
- avoid crossing the road at a curve or between parked cars
- avoid crossing roads with high-speed traffic.
