The tyre retailer Goodyear has introduced road safety initiatives to encourage parents to be aware of hazards on the road while driving their children around. The ‘Parent Pack’ has been introduced as part of their training initiatives to encourage parents to teach their children about the importance of road safety. The fun educational games are designed to be easy to use and form part of the company’s Driving Academy package.
The tyre manufacturer found that parents travel around 26,741 miles while travelling to school, parties, activities and friends’ houses with their children. Some parents took this opportunity to talk to their children, and others use this time to discuss homework or talk about their personal lives. Despite this, some parents still take safety for granted and the tyre manufacturer has encouraged parents to use this time to teach road safety to their children in order to prevent the many accidents on the roads involving younger people. Trainers at the Goodyear Driving Academy have been educating children across the country about road and tyre safety from a young age to prevent future accidents on the road.
Road safety for parents and children
Introducing road safety initiatives to parents can encourage many to see the dangers to their children if they take road safety for granted. Parent packs and educational materials can encourage parents to introduce road safety to children from a young age and can also help to educate parents on issues they may not have been aware of. Although many parents exercise vigilance by having proper child seating in place, by making sure their vehicle is maintained and by ensuring that they keep below the speed limit, there are some drivers who may not be as considerate. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was the fault of another road user, you may be entitled to compensation.
