Ms. Mc Nulty Rang a dó. Road Safety Authority Talk
Today a lady called Louise came to speak to us about Road Safety. She showed us a powerpoint, video, played the Safe Cross Song and asked us lots of questions.
Here are some of the important things we learned:
Never cross the road on a bend.
Always look both ways while crossing the road.
Always wear your seatbelt.
Always wear your helmet when cycling.
Cycle with an adult.
Wear your hi-visibility vest (you are 300 times more likely to be seen by a motorist.)
The best place to cross is the Zebra-crossing.
Never cross the road between two parked cars.
You must have a car seat until you are 5 foot tall. (you have to be 4 stone 6 pounds.)
Never get out on the road side always get out onto the footpath.
Never distract the driver.
