Do You Have Your Road Safety Badge ?
I have to admit when I was at Primary School I was a bit of a road safety geek, our school was entering an inter-schools Road Safety tournament and one child from years 3, 4,5 and 6 would be competing, to begin with the entire class had a road safety quiz, the one with the most correct answers was on the team, for our year 3s there were two joint leaders myself and a girl named Erica, who would later in school be the Bain of my existence (maybe that’s where it stemmed from!) I can remember it as clear as day, we were taken to a classroom and the head teacher asked us random Road Safety questions, each of us getting them correct, next it was on to road signs, Erica’s downfall was this one..
I gave the correct answer of Derestricted, I bet it’s not called that anymore! And I was in the team. It was our schools first year of entering and we walked away with the trophy! I stayed on the team throughout the rest of my time at Primary school, I found the newspaper cutting in my mementoes box a few weeks back, but you won’t be seeing that!
My love of road safety obviously did not last as long as I would have hoped as I got knocked down by a car when I was 13, so I had obviously forgotten some important rules, thankfully by the time it came to driving I had studied them all, although I am quite glad we didn’t have to do a theory test…
My eldest son does not share my love of Road Safety and has had a few near misses, thankfully the wonderful people at Accident Advice Helpline have put together this funky little road safety quiz, you can access it here.
I am pleased to report that I did achieve a 100% correct score, so did the children, and we received a certificate
It contained lots of scenarios for this little chap and you had a choice of three answers, when you clicked on one it gave you a little bit more information, if you are trying to teach your children road safety, this is a good little quiz to do together and it can lead to further discussions, go check it out.
