    Keep Alert, Keep Safe – the half-term road safety message in the East of England

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    This is the message being given out by the Ambulance Service in the East of England during half-term week. The director of the service pointed out the hazards that are present at this time of the year, especially as the clocks go back and it gets darker earlier. During the 2013 half-term week eight collisions took place that involved children between the ages of 5-16. The service is hoping that number will drop this year with the help of their ‘Keep Alert, Keep Safe’ campaign.

    They also issued a number of reminders for the campaign, focusing on how important it is for children to recognise the dangers of playing in or near roads. It is important for parents to be aware of their children’s knowledge in this area, and to highlight anything the children don’t know that could put them in danger.

    Children should also always wear a cycle helmet when riding their bikes, and find a suitable and safe place to cross a road. This advice is applicable to all children, not just during half-term or in the East of England, but across the country at all times.

    How dangerous can it be for a child to be unaware of the dangers of the roads?

    If a child has no real knowledge or appreciation of the dangers posed by roads and traffic, it puts them in a very precarious position. For example they can step out into the road with no fear, not even looking to see if anything is coming. This can lead to injuries and worse, so it is vital all children adhere to the ‘Keep Alert, Keep Safe’ idea supported by this campaign. The more parents can do to ensure their children know what to do, the better.
