    A traffic park could teach children road safety

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    Hana Rafajove hails from the Czech Republic and not only has she come to the UK to set up home here with her family, she has brought a very good idea with her too. In the Czech Republic she had seen several so-called traffic parks. These are safe off-road areas for children to use to learn how to use the roads and pavements properly. The park can teach children road safety by letting them use roads, lanes and junctions that do not have real traffic on them.

    When she realised there was nothing similar to it where she lives now, in Boston, she got in touch with the town area committee to suggest using the same idea here as well. The committee loved the idea and they are now looking into it to see whether the same thing could be a possibility here.

    At present the UK has just one traffic park located in Milton Keynes. Hana has spoken to many local people and many parents and children have been excited by the idea. She hopes a park could be set up locally to teach children road safety – and ideally many more might come into being across the UK too.

    Could a traffic park really reduce the number of accidents on the roads involving children?

    These parks are commonplace in Hana’s homeland, the Czech Republic. They provide children with a safe place to be and a way to understand how roads and junctions can sometimes be dangerous. The parks Hana saw had traffic lights and other road markings and signs in place, so aside from being on a slightly smaller scale they were an excellent learning experience for the children who used them. They could reduce the number of accidents by highlighting the danger areas when riding on the roads.
