A DARE Game Module

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.

Despite having some of the safest roads in the world, every year, thousands of children in the UK are killed or injured while travelling as pedestrians or cyclists.

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:

  • Choose a safe place to cross
  • Decide where and when it's safe to cross
  • It is safest to cross at a pedestrian crossing or a crossing patrol
  • Do not to cross where they can't see far along the road
  • Do not try to cross a road between parked cars; drivers won't be able to see them very well
  • Use the Green Cross Code - stop at the kerb, look both ways and listen for traffic before crossing
  • When it is safe to cross, walk straight across the road and keep looking and listening out for traffic
  • Concentrate - do not get distracted
