Ideal for discussing road safety in tutor time or at youth clubs, the DARE Game offers situation, setting and profile cards to enable thoughtful discussion.
Road safety is a great subject in which to engage children and young people. It is a subject even the youngest children know something about because everyone uses roads, and road danger impacts on everyone. It’s also a vitally important subject.
Road deaths and injuries are not inevitable. The last few decades have demonstrated that effective and comprehensive road safety strategies can reduce the number of people killed or injured on the road, despite increasing traffic levels.
Our DARE Game module on Road Safety is designed to help young people think about the dangers associated with the road in various situations and settings, not just whilst driving. In small groups they get discuss what the dangers might be with a randomised selection of information handed to them by the facilitator. A comprehensive lesson plan ensures the facilitator has access to the latest legal and statistical data available.
By setting a good example, you can make sure children remain safe and develop road and traffic awareness. You might also want to discuss these simple tips with your young people:
