    Kids in the Car campaign setting an example for future drivers

    By David Brown on September 9, 2014

    The Scottish Government and Road Safety Scotland are teaming up to encourage drivers to set a good example to future generations and to help develop a healthy attitude to road safety among young drivers. Last year’s successful Kids in the Car campaign is being used to demonstrate how parents and adults have a responsibility to set a positive example while driving to young children as kids are likely to be influenced by their parents’ attitudes to road safety. As children are influenced greatly by the adults around them, the campaign was set up to educate parents on how they can create safer roads by exhibiting safe driving behaviours. Worldwide research has shown that there is a link between parents’ driving behaviours and the behaviours of their children on the road when they begin driving. It is thought that these behaviours are picked up by children very early on, making them highly likely to become a dangerous driver if their parents display this attitude on the road. Simple behaviours such as putting on a seatbelt and being sympathetic to other drivers can influence children to do the same. Also, keeping under speed limits and avoiding distractions are good habits to adopt. This campaign is the first of its kind and has proven to be successful in educating parents and other road users.

    Simple road safety techniques

    Adopting respectful and responsible attitudes on the road can help to create safer roads for the future according to the Kids in the Car campaign. This means being respectful of vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, avoiding driving dangerously and keeping under the speed limit. In addition, distractions like mobile phones should be avoided and looking around thoroughly while driving are all good, simple road safety habits to adopt. Although many people do this as standard, there are still many drivers who are not as responsible. If you have been involved in an accident with one of these drivers, then you may be entitled to compensation.
