Parent and Child Campaign

Parent and Child Campaign

Glasgow City Council in partnership with Police Scotland are running a pedestrian safety campaign to remind parents to set a good example to their children when crossing the road.  

Following the summer break, many children will start school for the first time - this is a great opportunity for parents to start walking to school with their children and discuss safer crossing places and road safety in general.

The main message is that children will mirror their parent's behaviour and do what their parents do.

If a parent crosses between parked cars or doesn't make the effort to walk to a nearby pedestrian crossing, children will assume this what they should do, when not accompanied by their parents. 

If, however, parents actively teach their child the safer way to cross, the child will then copy this good example.
