Start teaching your child the traffic signals as early as possible. There is a wonderful poem on traffic signals which can help your child understand.
Always tell your child to walk on the pavement even when there is no traffic on the road.
Zebra Crossing is a place where you should cross the road. The cars will stop behind the zebra crossing to allow pedestrian cross.
Running on the road can be very dangerous. Children do not realize this when they are playing or when they are in a hurry.
Teach your children to always open the car door after looking behind whether a vehicle is crossing you.
A seatbelt is a must whether you have a 1-month-old child or a 10-year-old child. Never forget to fasten the seat belt of the child.
It is good if an adult can always accompany a child to cross the road. If the child is going out on the road on his or her own, make sure the child knows all the road rules and road dangers.
Never rush when on the road. Look on all sides twice and then cross the road. You need to show the child how it is done for them to follow.
