Stay Safe On The Road
Stay Safe On The Road has been developed by Road Safety GB in conjunction with Scania (Great Britain) Limited to teach 10-11 year olds about commercial vehicle blind spots and rear-wheel 'cut in' when turning corners.
The programme is delivered in accordance with a specially developed lesson plan. During the lesson, worksheets compare students' knowledge of blind spots and cut-in before and after teaching in order to ascertain the learning gained during the session.
Following the lesson, each student is given a personal copy of a Stay Safe on the Road booklet and a poster is left with the school to display as an aide memoire.
The final part of the process are three follow up sessions at intervals of six weeks and three and six months. These are delivered by the school and are designed to measure student's retention of the programme's messages over the longer term.
