    RAC and Aardman Animations team up to promote child road safety

    By David Brown on August 9, 2014

    This July, the RAC is working with THINK! and Aardman Animation to teach child road safety in schools across the country. Children from Windwhistle Primary School and other schools will be asked to work in groups to create short animated films on the subject of child road safety, with tips from Aardman Animation, the creators of Wallace and Gromit.

    Role-playing and interactive learning ensures children are engaged with the topic and will take responsibility for their own road safety, as part of the RAC’s Child Road Safety campaign and competition. Dangers on the road are everywhere, from blind corners and crossing in-between parked vehicles, to parents parking on zig-zag lines outside schools. Child road safety is not always taught at home, and schools should provide children with the information they need to stay safe.

    Lynette Bryan, a teacher at Windwhistle Primary School, commented: “There are many more things that could be done to support road safety awareness, working with both local authorities and emergency services. However, I believe that schools and teachers must continue to find ways to protect and educate children about the dangers of our roads, regardless of how much external support they receive.”

    Has your child been injured in a road traffic accident?

    If your child has been injured, either as a pedestrian whilst walking home from school or crossing the road, or as a passenger in a car, you may be wondering who is to blame for their accident. Whilst accidents do happen, and are often nobody’s fault, if there is evidence of dangerous driving, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Around 5,000 children under the age of 16 are seriously injured or die on the UK’s roads each year – 75% of these accidents occur when children are walking or playing. Injuries sustained could range from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones, concussion or serious, life-threatening injuries.

    Claiming compensation for your child’s road traffic accident

    However your child has been injured, the last thing you need is more stress, and so claiming compensation may not be the first thing on your mind. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our aim is to make the claims process as simple and straightforward as possible, so we offer confidential, no-obligation advice to all our customers. Whether your child has suffered cuts and bruises or has been seriously injured in a car accident, we can help.
